Guide for use:
The value domain uses the Field of Education classification of Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED). This is a three-level hierarchical Classification specifying broad, narrow and detailed fields of study.
This is the specific field of education in which the early childhood education and care worker has attained their highest early childhood education and care related qualification.
This item is only applicable to paid contact workers/caregivers in child care and preschool services.
The 'No qualification' and 'Qualification unknown' categories have been put into the Supplementary values field to ensure that the permissible values only refer to the field of education. Future development - suggest separating this data element into a yes/no indicator data element to determine whether the person has a qualification or not, and a field of education data element.
