New Early Learning & Care Degree

Posted on: April 3rd, 2021 by Admin

As the largest provider of Online courses in Ireland we are delighted to announce the launch of our comprehensive fully Online Degree Programme – BA Degree in Early Learning & Care in collaboration with one of the UK’s most prestigious Universities – Oxford Brookes University.

Our new online two year BA (Ord) in Early Learning & Care Degree programme has been developed for childcare practitioners progressing from 6M2007 QQI ECCE Level 6 Major awards and seeks to prepare you to take a professional and leading role in ELC provision. This may be in a formal leadership position or through mentoring, training and supporting roles in the workplace. As part of this preparation, you will gain a clear understanding of how children grow and learn, and of the interaction between learning and development.

You will recognise the important role of play in learning and development and apply this critically and reflectively to planning, leading and evaluating activities for young children. Observing children and analysing your observations will enable you to create an appropriate learning environment for each child that takes account of their stage of development, their interests and their needs.

Recent government initiatives, in the example of ‘First 5’ indicate predictors for growth and demand in the market, whereby it is intended for Ireland to have a graduate led ELC workforce, with at least 50% of staff (i.e. all room leaders, assistant manager and managers) working directly with children in centre-based ELC settings and coordinators supporting the work of childminders to hold an appropriate degree-level qualification.

Applications are now open for September 2021 start.
