I completed the QQI Childcare course level 6 major award in ECCE with Montessori on a full time basis in 2013/2014. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the course and will remember my time with Progressive College fondly. I was initially worried starting the course as it was a career change and I would be a mature student. I had no reason to worry and I will never look back. The tutors were all a fantastic help from beginning to end and although it was hard work the tutors were there for us every step of the way. I loved learning with them and really felt like they were on the journey with us. The course coordinator, Karen, was a huge help and so welcoming and approachable when it came to queries or anything we needed. I found the work experience element to be a massive advantage as we got to really connect with the children over the year and it gave me the confidence when going into a job as I had learnt so much over the year and couldn’t wait to utilise my new skills.
All in all I would recommend this course to anyone and I would say enjoy every minute because the year flies in.
