First ever child care apprenticeship in Australia was through ACCCO!
ACCCO was the first training provider to sign up an apprentice. From here ACCCO has gone on to train many thousands of apprentices and trainees in Education and Care.
Vet student outcomes
The 2017 National Centre for Vocational Education (NCVER) Student Outcomes Survey statistics show that ACCCO students have higher employment outcomes than all other training providers across Australia!
ACCCO graduates sit at 84.9% employment rate which is considerably higher than the 77.7% from all other Australian VET providers.
Of those students employed after training, 94.4% of students that studies with ACCCO found the training provided was relevant to their current job. Statistics show that from students enrolled with other training providers, only 79% of the students found the training relevant to their employment.
