Frequently Asked Questions

What is the ECA Learning Hub?

The Early Childhood Australia (ECA) Learning Hub is an online learning platform that offers online professional development for educators and other professionals working with children.

Our professional learning provides a thorough and practical understanding of standards, frameworks and research about quality practice, including links to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), the National Quality Standard (NQS) and My Time, Our Place (MTOP).

We develop online learning modules and webinars. You can purchase a title as a one-off, or take out an annual subscription and access over sixty professional learning titles.

What is an online module?

An online learning module is a computer-based course that you undertake at your own pace. Our online modules are interactive, including text, activities and often video interviews, too. Every online learning module that we sell has been quality-assured through a formal review process. You can use each module as many times as you like during a 12-month period from the date of release (or first date of access).

What is a webinar?

Webinars are online seminars. The Learning Hub offers on-demand studio-quality webinars, presented by a range of experts in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector. Perfect for group training, each webinar can be watched at a time that suits you. Pause, rewind, make notes and discuss, our interactive platform allows you to take control of your professional development.

What is an annual subscription?

To make the ECA Learning Hub your one-stop-shop for professional development, sign up for an annual subscription. One flat fee = 12 months of access to all our current and forthcoming online learning modules and on-demand webinars, for all your staff. For groups, this is the easiest and most affordable way to use ECA Learning Hub. Click here to find out more.

What resources do I get under the annual subscription?

From 2017, all new and renewed subscriptions will also receive access to the on-demand webinar series.

Are webinars included?

From 2017, we are pleased to offer our new on-demand webinar series as an addition to your Learning Hub Subscription.
