Course Description

Advanced Certificate in Early Learning and Care – QQI Level 6 Major Award

Progressive College

This level 6 certificate is designed with Early Childhood professionals, and the children they will engage with, in mind. The aim of the (two stage) programme is to enable learners to develop the knowledge, skills, and competence to work as autonomous practitioners, subject to practice supervision, promoting and supporting the holistic needs of children from 0 to six years, and/or to take responsibility for a room or area in an ELC setting.

The Advanced Certificate in Early Learning & Care – Level 6, introduces the learner to the key concepts and theories involved in Early Childhood Education and Care while simultaneously equipping them with the skills and competencies to lead a room in an early childhood education and care setting. On completion of the Advanced Certificate in ELC, the learner will be able to assess the holistic needs of the children in their care and create developmentally appropriate plans to further the child’s learning and care, as well as interacting appropriately with various stakeholders.  The programme aims to equip future ELC professionals with the tools to navigate the ever-changing landscape of early childhood education and care in Ireland, the tools and dispositions to provide the best practice and care for the children they engage with, and to think critically about their roles as professionals within the communities in which they will work
