RATEP is a successful, community-based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teacher education program offered in Queensland's remote, rural and urban areas.
Early childhood through RATEP allows educators to gain or upgrade early childhood qualifications while living and working in their home communities. The qualifications available include:
- Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
- Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
- Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education and Care).
Delivery is through a mix of online and face-to-face methods by attending residential blocks with other students studying in remote areas. Students will receive ongoing study support from tertiary education teachers and a RATEP Teacher Coordinator while they continue to live and work in their community.
Tailored study support is also available with a dedicated RATEP Early Childhood Teacher Coordinator in the community.
