The Australian Community Education College (ACEC) is a Registered Training Organisation specialising in early childhood education and care.

The Australian Community Education College (ACEC) is a Registered Training Organisation, developed by Matthew Stapleton from Centre Support.

Matthew holds Tertiary Qualifications in Adult Education and has worked in child care for the past fifteen years.

In recent years Matthew has observed that the child care industry struggles to retain high quality, qualified staff as new services continue to increase rapidly across Australia. Our aim is to bring quality care back into early childhood through the training and upskilling of childcare professionals.

We appreciate that for high quality to occur, it is imperative that thoroughly trained and well experienced educators have the fundamental skills to be competent in their roles. It isn’t simply knowledge; it’s the set of skills individuals develop that will bring back quality. Hence the development of ACEC to bring back quality-trained educators through our innovative and bold approach to teaching and training.

ACEC currently offers nationally recognised training in:

We also offer Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for suitable candidates. RPL is a great way of gaining your nationally recognised qualifications if you have been in the industry for a number of years and have not previously gained a formal qualification.
