2024 Student Fast Track

Childcare Students can apply to DCEDIY for a Letter of Temporary Permission to Practice for the Summer of 2024.

DCEDIY has arranged an accelerated process for assessment of equivalence with the level 5 minimum qualification requirement for students currently enrolled on a recognised level 6, 7 or 8 course.

Students who are approved through the accelerated assessment process will receive a “Letter of Temporary Permission to Practice” from DCEDIY. A student who has such a letter may be employed to work directly with children attending an ELC service until at latest 1st of September 2024 (a student may also apply at the same time for a general – not time-limited – Letter of Eligibility to Practice).

The student’s Letter of Temporary Permission to Practice will be recognised by Tusla as meeting the requirements of Section 9(4) of the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016. A Registered Provider should keep a copy of the student’s Letter on file as evidence of temporary recognition.

A facility for advertising temporary posts is now available on www.myccc.ie. If you wish to advertise a temporary post on this site, please send your requirements/advertisement to Carlow County Childcare Committee by email info@carlowccc.ie. This vacancy can also be posted on Carlow CCC Jobs Boards and Carlow CCC Facebook page on request.
