A.Sc in Early Childhood Education (JBTE)

The Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education provides an intermediate level academic qualification that bridges the gap between vocational qualifications and the Bachelor of Education. Early childhood caregivers may already have a range of skills and experiences in the early childhood field which can be assessed through the prior learning vocational route, but may find that the lack of a formal academic qualification prevents progress in their careers. Studying for an Associate Degree (ASc) places students in tertiary education and will prepare them for increased responsibilities, therefore expanding employment opportunities in early years education.
