Hi aimee,
I also am lazy and tend to leave my assignments til the last day. What is OTEN???

Melissa,Bathurst,3yr old and 1yr old

hi,

OTEN is open training education network, its TAFE but they said you your assignments and study notes and then you send your finished assignments back to them.

Oh ok I wish I could do my course by correspondence but they dont offer it

Melissa,Bathurst,3yr old and 1yr old

OTEN only offers some courses, its TAFE accredited and theres heaps of support fromthe teachers there etc. this is the 2nd course ive done thru there. it is a bit expensive and the price varies for certificates and diplomas, but centrelink will give you austudy or the pensioner education supplement as long as you complete the certificate within their time frame

Hi everyone!
I am currently studying my cert III in children's services (childcare), it just sounds better the other way!
I do it by correspondence through Thomson Education Direct, & I find them terrific! They send you everything you need, & also send you back your assignments after they've been graded.
I started two years ago when my 2nd child was almost 2, as I thought it would be great to go to work & take her with me. When we found out we were pregnant again, everything kind of went on hold as I had a really bad time. As it is, I've only been out of PND for about 2mths
But, they were really supportive & told me there was an extension there if I need it, but so far so good!
I now work at a childcare centre 3 days a week as an assistant, & I'm about halfway through my modules. When I fnish this course, I want to do my Diploma, & if I can do it through them again, I definately will!

hi all.

its really good to see mothres and fathers continuing to work or study after having children !! a lot of people criticised me and told me i didnt deserve to have a child since i was going to put her into child care 3 days a week whilst working and told me that i was an unfit mother. i would love to stay at home with her until she maybe is one year old but children can be expensive (nappies formula wipes etc etc etc).

Hi guys, I have actually had the opposite response when I tell people I am studying fulltime with two kids. Most people congratulate me. How are you supposed to give your children a better life if you aren't able to study and further yourself. I have found my lecturers to be really helpful too. I am studying a bachelor of education (early childhood) at CSU bathurst. I am the sort of person who leaves assessments to the last minute anyway but I must admit my kids are pretty good as they will amuse themselves most of the time and let me work. I suppose they have each other to play with too. They do go to daycare 3 times a week though.
