All NIEC students, including post-secondary students, mid-careerists and EC professionals, can look forward to the following:
Unified training: There will be unified foundational training across different campuses, enabling consistency in preparing trainees to take on the work of EC professionals.
Field-based learning: Practicum attachments / internships at pre-school centres will provide authentic learning within the unique context of the early childhood work culture.
A sense of fraternity:There will be opportunities to network with early childhood education students in other campuses and early childhood experts.
In addition, post-secondary students can look forward to:
Cross-campus learning: Students can sign up for electives
in niche areas that are available in other campuses and take part in EC master classes.
A global perspective: Opportunities for overseas study trips and exchange programmes will allow students to develop a global perspective of early childhood education.
