The Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management qualification has been designed for workers who are currently employed as, or eligible to work as a Nominated Supervisor, Director, Coordinator, Manager or similar of an ACECQA approved service.
This qualification is suitable for workers seeking to broaden their management and leadership skills, who have existing qualifications or extensive experience in early childhood education and care management roles. It has been devised to support Supervisors, Coordinators, Managers and Directors with the necessary knowledge and skills to be a successful early childhood service manager. While ACECQA doesn't specifically require this qualification to work in these roles, many early childhood service managers find they lack the higher level skills and knowledge required to be an effective manager and leader that is obtained from the Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management qualification.
Graduates of this program will learn the importance of leadership and mentoring, change and risk management, workforce planning, legal and financial compliance, and evaluating quality frameworks and business policies.
Upon completion of the Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management course, you will be ready to improve in your current management role, progress your career into a more senior position, or open up opportunities in the broader community services sector.
