QQI Accredited Childcare Courses

Early Childhood Care & Education has changed significantly in Ireland over the past number of years. As and from December 2016, there has been a legal requirement for those working in the Early Years sector to have a recognised and appropriate childcare qualification from attending a Childcare Course.  A major award at Level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications  (QQI) is necessary for those wishing to work in the ECCE sector in any capacity and a major award at Level 6 is required for those wishing to work as room leaders.  With a major emphasis also being placed on the provision of quality childcare, and research showing that quality is directly linked to the standard of ECCE training received by the practitioner, the College of Progressive Education ensures that our ECCE Childcare Courses meet the sector’s needs.

With over 30 years’ experience in delivering high-quality childcare courses, the College provides students with the most comprehensive and relevant training.  Our tutors are highly qualified individuals who have experience at both a theoretical and practical level in childcare.  Our tutors are extremely supportive and provide great assistance to all our learners during their training and beyond!
