Your mum could try for a traineeship but it is unlikely she would be eligible for the incentive payments employees get until she has lived here for a while, they are also usually extremely competitive.
You do not need qualifications yet to work in Outside School Hours care so she may be more likely to get work there.

it would be absolutely fantastic if she could get this training "through" her work, so to speak! I'm so excited to tell her! I am concerned about her age (being almost 60 when she arrives), but she is incredibly fit and a really competent child care professional. So hopefully someone will give her a chance. This opportunity would give her a new lease on life in a sense!

We have a 68 year old where I work, and at another place we had a 62 year old who had done family daycare for 30 years unqualified then got a job at that centre and was able to RPL more than 1/2 the course and finished it in less than 6 months while working ft. Anything is possible!

You should look into whether overseas work experience/qualifications can be credited or accepted in lieu of the certificate III also.

I notice there are alot of positions advertised for 'mature child care workers' maybe she could apply for roles like that and outline her experience on her resume, maybe she could pick up work from there, or even a traineeship to do a Cert 3, too. If not, it is required to study your Cert 3 in Children services, my course costs me approx $1,300 on concession and a little more than that full paying. All the best, Hope this helps!
