What is Changing with Early Years Qualifications?

Note:  This course cannot be used to achieve an ECCE childcare award as both 5M2009 Certificate in ECCE and 6M2007 will be deactivated in December 2023 and replaced with the new Level 5 Certificate in ELC and the new Level 6 Advanced Certificate in ELC.

If you have not been able to complete your ECCE Childcare Qualification – Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) might be an option available to you via our head office Quality Assurance Department. For further information on RPL email Caroline Goode,  caroline.goode@lcetb.ie 

NOTE: As the childcare Cert 6M2007 is to be deactivated, this module cannot now be used for ECCE Accreditation.
