The ICEC has been running a small vocational collage since 1995, where we offer National Vocational Qualifications to adults working within the ICEC Company or who would like to gain a qualification and training from distance learning.

This qualification enables you to work either part-time or full-time and gain a qualification in childcare for children ages 0-19.

The course is designed to support staff involved in nurseries that provide a foundation to develop student skills, knowledge and competence within their role. 

As with all our training courses, our full assessor support give students great flexibility to learn and qualify at their own pace, still maintaining their workload for providing quality childcare.

The course can be studied online, with regular interaction with your assessor. This enables each student to organize their work without having to carry around a heavy portfolio. 

All students have one to one support from an allocated assessor who will visit their workplace setting as required.

This is an English qualification, therefore a foreign qualification in Finland. All individual student certificates have to be individually assessed by The Board of Education if required by their employer.
