Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

analyse the contexts of preschool education and care in terms of their management, funding, staff roles and responsibilities, as it applies in the regulatory environment.

evaluate, implement and reflect on the notion of 'quality' for early childhood education and care in relation to; relationships with children, families and the wider community; diversity; educational programs including the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and educational learning models used in early childhood programs; the National Quality Standard (ACECQA, 2018); and early childhood philosophy, policies and procedures as linked to the regulatory framework.
