3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
This three-year programme is structured to enable participants to become professional, reflective practitioners with an integrated approach in early childhood education and care. Students will acquire skills in areas such as: children’s play; creative studies; care; education; children’s literature; sociology and social policy. In the second half of the programme, students can specialise depending on areas of interest. A supervised work placement in a variety of early years settings is a key element of the programme enabling students to learn from practice as well as theory.
The design and content of the programme has been determined by the Model Framework for Education, Training and Professional Development for the Early Childhood Care and Education sector. The programme includes a work placement that will bring students into direct contact with children and therefore offers for this programme are conditional and could subsequently be withdrawn if applicants do not successfully complete the Garda Vetting process.
