In preparation for the arrival of the National Childcare Scheme, Service Provider training sessions have been conducted since the 11th of March.
Several hundred training sessions have taken place with thousands of Service Providers, numerous Supporting Organisations and a wide variety of Sign-Posting Organisations attending.
In support of the launch of the National Childcare Scheme on the 20th of November the NCS Training Team have developed a series of training resources.
A selection of Applicant and Service Provider training videos are now available to all on the National Childcare Scheme’s official YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq1sQs1H5WJPyByl-pMkqYA).
The training video playlists are characterised by Applicant and Service Provider and are available on the following channels.
