Course Details

The Higher Certificate in Arts in Montessori Education (HETAC Level 6) course prepares you for the task of helping children aged 3-6 and 6-9 years to develop to the fullness of their individual human potential. This 2 year full time Montessori programme provides an opportunity to study, indepth, Montessori pedagogy, practices and child development as well as an interdisciplinary approach to the study of humans, their endeavours and their relationship with the universe.

In light of recent developments in the childcare sector new guidelines regarding qualification requirements for participation in the Free Preschool Scheme require that in addition to meeting the requirements regarding staff ratios, as provided for under the Child Care Regulations, the pre-school year Leader must hold a certification for a Major Award in childcare/early education at a minimum of Level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications of Ireland (NFQ) or an equivalent recognised qualification in the childcare/early education field. It is for this reason that Portobello Institute are currently working on introducing this all encompassing course - to give students the necessary qualifications to work in the Montessori environment.

The Montessori Education Higher Certificate in Arts course will provide students with the relevant knowledge and skills to empower them to make a significant contribution within the Montessori sector.
