We are having an Open Evening for students interested in finding out more about Montessori Teaching qualifications in our Dublin campus.

SNMCI Open Days 

15th January 2018th

1600hrs to 1930hrs

12th February 2018th

1600hrs to 1930hrs

16 Adelaide St., Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

The purpose of each open day is as follows:

15th January 2018
This Open Day will be focused on school leavers as they consider their choices for the 2018 CAO process. Direct entry onto the Level 7 Bachelor of Education in Montessori Education (NM701) is processed through the CAO. Once students successfully complete this programme, they can progress onto the Level 8 Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Montessori Education.

Those attending will be taken through the course structure and college staff will be on hand to answer any questions potential applicants may have.

12th February 2018
This Open Day will be focused on those already working in the early years sector and have QQI Level 5 or Level 6 awards in Early Childhood Education, or who wish to take the programme on a part-time basis. In these cases, persons are looking to upskill their current qualifications in order to improve their career prospects in the early years sector. A Level 7 qualification enables graduates to become Room Leaders in early years settings, thus attracting the higher rate of ECCE capitation.

Those attending this session will be given an indicative outline of module exemptions based on their existing certified learning and this will allow them to plan their study with SNMCI. They will also be advised on the application process. Furthermore, they will be taken through the course structure as well as having the opportunity of meeting college staff.

Ian McKenna, Director of SNMCI noted:
“While we are dealing with two different types of potential students, we look forward to meeting everyone. Everyone can get a chance of discussing their ambitions will college staff and more importantly, see how we can help them to realise their professional ambitions.”

He continued:
“September 2018 will mark the last opportunity for those in the school leaver intake who will be able to register with The Teaching Council once they have successfully completed the Level 8 Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Montessori Education. We are anxious to ensure that all Career Guidance Counsellors and their students are aware of this.”
