As a new graduate starting out in your career in early childhood education, gaining full teacher certification is not always straightforward.

The following article answers many of the questions hanging over provisionally certificated teachers’ heads and serves to provide some clarity around what is expected of you on your journey towards full certification and maintaining your certification throughout your career.
