We are launching a slew of new courses that will help you create more inclusive learning environments for the little ones, who may have special or added needs. Learn more about the courses below.


Certificate in Inclusive Practice (CIP)

CIP will equip Diploma-trained early childhood (EC) educators with additional knowledge and skills to work with children with developmental needs included in the regular EC settings. The course comprises 7 modules, subdivided into 3 clusters. You may apply for this course as:
