New qualification codes in ELI

In June 2019, we are making changes to the qualification codes in all Student Management Systems (SMS) and ELI Web. These changes will be in place in advance of the Annual Early Childhood Education (ECE) Return.

The changes to the qualification codes apply to Playcentres, Home-based and Centre-based services.

We will be adding six new qualification codes and removing two that will become redundant.

New codes to be added by 1 June 2019

What do you need to do after 1 June 2019?

In your SMS or ELI Web, you should review the qualification code that is selected for each staff/educator at your service. If any of your staff/educators have a qualification code that has been removed, you must select one of the new codes available.
