This certificate is on offer in both our Swords and Balbriggan Offices.  This brand new certificate replaces the old childcare level 5 full certificate. Learners will complete at least eight modules at level 5 to gain this award. This programme is offered on a part time basis of 6 hours per week with varying options and can now be completed within one year.  The overall aim of the programme is to provide the learner with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skill and competence to work independently and under supervision in a range of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) settings and or to progress to higher education and training

 The Learner Fund

Fingal Adult Education Service (DDLETB) is an approved provider on the Pobal Learner Fund panel of training providers and has been approved to deliver both QQI Level 5 & Level 6 major awards in Early Childhood Care and Education.

 The learner fund is used to subsidise the cost for eligible learners to undertake accredited Level 5 and Level 6 courses.  It is aimed at staff working directly with children in registered early years services, to gain certain accredited qualifications which will become mandatory in September 2016.  From September 2016, all staff working in Early Years Services will need to have a full Level 5 qualification and all Preschool (ECCE) Room Leaders will need a full Level 6 qualification.

 Pobal is responsible for managing the Learner Fund which is being administered locally by City and County Childcare Committees.

 If you have been approved for the learner fund or require any further information, please call Fiona Kavanagh, Childcare Co-ordinator on 01 8417763.
