International Child Care College is an approved Smart and Skilled provider. This training is subsided by the NSW Government.
The NSW Government contributes to the cost of each course and the student pays the balance. Fees are for the whole course, rather than year-by-year. Your choice of training provider does not affect the fee you pay for any course. Fee exemptions and concessions are also available for disadvantaged learners.
To check the student fee for the Early Childhood Education and Care course that you wish to study, visit the Skills NSW website and click ‘Calculate My Fees.’
Students who meet the Fee-Free Scholarship criteria are exempt from paying a student fee. All qualifications on the NSW Skills List from Certificate I to Certificate IV level, including qualifications that support apprenticeships and traineeships, are covered. More information on Fee-Free Scholarships can be found here.
In addition to the Student fee, there may be some additional charges. These may be for essential equipment and other items that become your property, for example, personal protective clothing, replacement text books etc. All course specific fees and charges will be advised prior to your enrolment in your qualification of choice and must be paid prior to the commencement of your course.
If you are applying for a fee exemption or concession fee, you are required to supply appropriate documentation when you enrol. There are no fee exemptions or concessions for non-subsidised courses.

As a provider of Smart and Skilled funded training, International Child Care College must only carry out notification of enrolment via the portal in accordance with the following process:
As part of the enrolment process you will be asked to provide ICCC with permission to utilise your Unique Student Identifier (USI).
The USI is a national student number that allows students to see all of their individual training results (including all completed training units and qualifications) from all providers in one space. Each individual account is linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) data collection, meaning you will be able to find, collate and authenticate your VET achievements into a single transcript. It will also ensure that your training records are not lost.
You only need one USI for all of your study, and it stays with you for life.
If you have undertaken any registered training since 2015, you may already have a USI. For Help finding an existing USI click here.

As a registered training organisation, ICCC is required to collect students’ USI numbers and verify them before being allowed to issue students their qualification or statement of attainment. Where students are applying for training subsidised by the NSW Government, a verified USI is required before funding will be approved.
If you would like any further information in addition to the above listed policies, procedures, handbook etc, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or call us on 1300 66 00 63.
