How can my overseas qualification be recognised for early childhood teaching in Australia?
ACECQA is responsible for assessing early childhood qualifications for the purposes of working in early childhood education and care services under the National Quality Framework (NQF). ACECQA does not publish a list of overseas early childhood teaching qualifications under the NQF.
If you wish to be recognised as an early childhood teacher in an education and care service, you may apply to ACECQA to have your qualifications assessed for equivalence. Details of the process and requirements to have your overseas qualifications assessed for equivalence can be found here. Please refer to the Guidelines for Assessment and Determination of Equivalent Qualifications and the Qualification Assessment Application Form.
As your qualifications were awarded overseas, you will need to provide evidence to ACECQA of the qualification level against the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). You can obtain this assessment from either the Overseas Qualification Unitin your state/territory or AEI-NOOSR.
ACECQA will also accept evidence of current teacher registration in an Australian State/Territory as evidence of qualification levelling.
