Important Notice regarding Childcare Courses

Recently, fundamental changes to the structure of the Childcare award have been announced and are due to come into effect in September 2023. It now seems that due to the extent of these changes, it will not be feasible to run the new Childcare course in our part-time night-course setting from that date.
Should you wish to complete your major award at level 5 or 6 in childcare under the existing award structure, you must do so before September 2023. After that time, you will have to engage with QQI and/or a provider who is offering the new Childcare award regarding credit for your previously completed components against the new award.
