Recognition as an ‘equivalent early childhood teacher'

15 March 2022

Did you know that from 1 January 2022, a person who holds ALL of the following will be recognised as equivalent to an ECT:

  • A primary or secondary teaching qualification


  • Registration with the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia


  • An ACECQA approved certificate III level (or higher) early childhood education and care qualification.

After the end of 2023, this transitional measure is scheduled to cease, however individuals who have obtained this combination of qualifications before the end of 2023 will continue to be recognised under this provision.
