Portobello Institute’s foundations lie in early years education since its establishment offering childcare courses since 1981.
Year on year, our graduates have made significant impacts within the early year’s sector working within county childcare committees, Pobal, DCEDIY and teaching on early years programmes. Successfully opening and running early years settings and Montessori schools have been the career choices of many of our graduates.
The QQI Level 5 and 6 courses in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) and Montessori Teaching provide you with the opportunity to obtain the nationally recognised qualification opening up employment opportunities to you as well as offering a path of progression to degree programmes
For those wishing to progress to degree level, we offer Level 7, Level 8 and Masters programmes in Early Childhood Studies. Our degrees are DCEDIY approved and provide you with a broad range of opportunities.
