Producing more qualified teachers for Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE)

Our country is in dire need of more qualified teachers in the field of early childhood care & education. So much so that it is now a project as part of the Government Entry Point Project (EPP) category under the 10th Malaysian Plan. 

The aim of this project is to ensure that quality education starts from a young age, even as early as 3 to 6 years old. According to EPP, by 2015, teachers in Kindergarten are encouraged to have a minimum qualification of Diploma in ECCE. 

This is to ensure that quality education that is given to the children starting from 3 to 6 years old with the aim of leading them toward better adoption of higher learning. 

SEGi Education Group was appointed by the Government to champion this project in producing more professionals in this area through the Diploma in Early Childhood Education. This diploma is available in Sarawak Campus (SCSwk) for Sarawakians who want to further study in this area right after SPM. 

“Early Childhood Education in SEGi Sarawak Campus is open for both fulltime and part time study mode. Facilities such as Mock Play Room are provided to enhance the teaching method to both theory and practical,” said Madam Elina Tiu, the Principal of SCSwk. 

Kindergarten teachers who have yet to obtain a diploma qualification are encouraged to further their study in Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE) for fulfilling the government EPP so that by 2015, they will be qualified to teach in kindergarten. 

DECE at SCSwk is endorsed by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA). 

Scholarships are available for students who have achieved excellent results in SPM and financial assistance by way of study loans is also available to both full time and part time students. 

DECE is now open for registration at SCSwk for the April Intake. 

A rebate of RM500 will be given to those students who register into a SEGi College Sarawak programme on Open Day 30th and 31st March 2013 at SEGi College Sarawak Main Campus, Branch Campus, Sibu Recruitment Centre, Sabah Admission Center and any of the roadshow venues available on selected dates.
