Event description

Description

Please note that this event is for practitioners and providers working in Early Years services in the Dublin City remit area only

Dublin City Childcare Committee are delighted to host an information session regarding current initiatives which are supporting the growth of a qualified and confident workforce and the further development of inclusive culture within Irish Early Years education and care settings.

The information session will consist of:

  • an introduction to the LINC Programme

  • a presentation on the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM)

  • an introduction to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion training (DCCC)

The Leadership for Inclusion Programme (LINC) Roadshow presenter will cover topics such as; the programme overview & structure, eligibility, the online application process, using the online learning platform and feedback from previous participants.

AIM Coordinator, Catherine Healy, will deliver a presentation on the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM Better Start) such as the levels of supports available, the application process and a case study example of how supports are applied in various scenarios.

A Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) trainer from the DCCC will present a brief introduction to the contents of this 15 hour workshop and some participant feedback.

If you have any questions in relation to this year's LINC Programme which starts in September, or regarding AIM or DEI training please come along to this information session and a member of the LINC team will be happy to help.

About LINC:

LINC is a free (fully funded) higher education blended-learning programme designed for early years teachers, to promote the inclusion of children with additional needs. After completing the programme, graduates will carry out the role of Inclusion Coordinator and will also meet the educational requirement for room leader status. Once a qualified graduate is working within an early years setting as the INclusion Coordinator, the setting will be entitled to an extra capitation payment of €2 per ECCE - eligible child in a pre-school room, where the child is on an ECCE/CCS/TEC programme. Further information about the programme can be found by visiting the LINC programme website www.lincprogramme.ie.

About AIM:

The Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) is a model of supports designed to ensure that children with disabilities can access the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Programme. Its goal is to empower pre-school providers to deliver an inclusive pre-school experience, ensuring that every eligible child can meaningfully participate in the ECCE Programme and reap the benefits of quality early years care and education.
