Start your ca­reer in early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion

Auckland City Harbour News - - Education & Training -

Early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion is a field that of­fers many ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties. New Zealand has a short­age of qual­ifi staff, and if you like work­ing with young chil­dren, now is a great time to get started on a re­ward­ing ca­reer.

Ed­in­burgh In­sti­tute of­fers you the first step on your ca­reer path with the Na­tional Cer­tifi­cate in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion and Care level 5. This is a com­pre­hen­sive course which pre­pares stu­dents for en­try into ei­ther a Diploma or Bach­e­lor de­gree in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion and al­lows for cross­credit to­wards th­ese higher qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

The Cer­tifi­cate is a full time course of 34 weeks. It in­cludes 35 days of prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence in two early child­hood cen­tres.

Ed­in­burgh In­sti­tute wel­comes both New Zealand and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents of all ages but stu­dents must be at least 17 years old in or­der to work in an early child­hood cen­tre. Stu­dents with English as a sec­ond lan­guage re­quire English skills equiv­a­lent to IELTS level 5.5, and English lan­guage cour­ses are also avail­able through the In­sti­tute. Po­lice checks are re­quired of all stu­dents to con­firm they have no se­ri­ous con­vic­tions.

Women who have raised their fam­i­lies and want to re­turn to the work­force, and who en­joy work­ing with chil­dren, will find this an ideal op­por­tu­nity to start a new ca­reer.

At Ed­in­burgh In­sti­tute, stu­dents will find a nur­tur­ing, re­laxed and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment with ex­pe­ri­enced and car­ing teach­ing and ad­min­is­tra­tion staff.

The In­sti­tute’s cam­pus is sit­u­ated in a lovely spa­cious cam­pus in Par­nell which in­cludes a beau­ti­ful his­toric build­ing as well as mod­ern class­rooms.

Also on site are two li­censed early child­hood cen­tres and a stu­dent hos­tel is just across the road.

The next in­take starts at the be­gin­ning of April and en­rol­ments are be­ing ac­cepted now. To en­quire about en­rol­ment or ob­tain fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, phone Jay on 379 5528 or Gill on 533 6551.
