Children and Families" Stepping Up Course - Taree 
The "Children and Families" Stepping Up course began in March and runs for fifteen weeks, three days per week. On completion, students will achieve a Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational pathways  - which is recognised as a Year 10 equivalent.  

All students are hoping to go to TAFE in Semester 2 to study a Certificate III in Childcare followed by a Diploma in Early Childhood Studies.
Students undertaking this course have not completed Year 10 through the traditional schooling system and are enjoying the chance to complete their Certificate II through an alternative route, with the support of Mid Coast Connect.
