Each learner will complete the assessments which are required to attain the QQI Level 5 award.
The purpose of this programme is to equip the learner with the skill, knowledge and competence required to work under supervision and independently in a range of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) setting and/or to progress to higher education and training.
No particular skills, knowledge or competence will be required of the learner for successful completion of the programme. However learners will be expected to have a minimum of Level 4 Certificate standard of education or equivalent together with a strong interest in the provision of quality care and education for children, this is not mandatory. It is essential that learners have competence in written and spoken English, along with computer literacy skills.
The programme will cater for a variety of adult learners ranging from school leavers with no previous experience in the ECCE sector to more mature adults with relevant life or work experience. Some of the latter will have previously had some education and training in childcare. More mature adults will frequently be seeking new career opportunities, be working in the home or currently working in the childcare sector. These will tend to opt for the part-time learning route to achieving the award. The programme will be open to both male and female learners although male participants will be in the minority.
