The Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education programme is designed to produce specialized teachers who can work in different early childhood institutions that are on increase, child focused NGOs, and in any other area that requires Early Childhood Care and education related skills. The attainment of Diploma in ECE may also be used as entry qualifications to degree programmes. Students seeking advanced degrees may benefit from this Diploma programme because they may better be prepared for further study in a wide range of disciplines. Some students may become interested in the advanced study of ECCE specialisation after having completed the certificate.
