Each participant receives comprehensive reference material for Unit Standard on CD as well as a POE file, workbook, and assessment instruments. During the workshop learners will prepare a portfolio of evidence to submit for assessment against the unit standard.  As soon as you are found competent, and once Future-Teacher has received endorsement from the ETDP SETA, we will issue the necessary certificate.

 We can do a quote on in-house training for 10 or more learners.

COURSE INFORMATION

Early Childhood Development Level 4

Distance Learning with Contact Sessions

 

Our goal is to empower future teachers by providing a more engaging, fulfilling learning experience in the Pre-school environment.

A pre-requisite to the level 4 course is that you need a qualification on NQF level 3 (Gr 11) or higher to complete this course

This course should appeal to a person:

  • who is already involved in a nursery school and would like to be recognised as a qualified ECD practitioner;
  • who is a teacher’s assistant in an ECD centre and would like to gain a recognised qualification;
  • who is interested in becoming an au pair and would like to gain a qualification to support their field of interest;
  • who wants a career change and would like to get involved in early childhood development;
  • with a passion for pre-school kids who has been unemployed for some time and would like to re-enter the world of work with recognised skills in this field;

 Requirements:

  • Gr 11 equal to a Level 3 qualification is needed for the course, or a higher qualification. (If the student only has a Gr 10 some assessments will need to be done and only after an evaluation and interview will it be decided if they can enrol for the course.)
  • Students need to be competent in English as that is the language in which the course is presented.
  • Students need to be competent in a second language as four of the Unit Standards have to be done in a second language. At this stage the course is only offered in Afrikaans.  Material is only available currently in Afrikaans, but Skillspro is investigating where and how we can accommodate Zulu as well.
  • Students need to have access to the internet as all communication happens via email. Assignments and assessments have to be sent electronically to the Assessor (scanned, faxed or emailed).
