Who should enrol?
The course will cater for a variety of adult learners with a minimum Level 5 Certificate/ Ordinary Level Leaving Certificate standard of education. Many learners will previously have completed a Level 5 award in Childcare and may have experience in working in ECCE settings but this will not be mandatory. The participants will range from school leavers with no previous experience in the ECCE sector to more mature adults with relevant life or work experience. Younger participants will tend to complete the course by the full-time method. Some mature adults will be seeking new career opportunities or be working in the home but many will be already working in the sector and either already be in supervisory positions or aspire to such positions. These will tend to opt for the part-time learning route to achieving the award.

They provide online courses so that you do not have to attend a full-time college course and once you have the experience you can work while completing the modules through Chevron!”
