Montessori Teaching - Summer Intensive

This course is an ideal study option for those students who can complete the course work during summer holidays.

The Intensive Montessori course allows for compressed learning covering the equivalent course content of the standard course with face to face contact with our core tutor Olga Mc Kiernan who has over 20 years of experience in tutoring and has been tutoring this course for the past 4 years with a high success rate for students.

Time saved with the intensive learning means it is the perfect option for those who want to progress their studies quickly and gain an international recognised qualification level 6 Minor Awards in Montessori Education. By also completing Part 2 students will then achieve the Early Years Care and Education Major Award. 

Part of our ethos is to offer small class sizes to ensure that all learners get the best from their education with us through peer interaction and ongoing tutor support. 

QQI Level 6 Minor Awards in Montessori modules as follows;

  • Early Learning Environment
  • Early Childhood Literacy and Numeracy
  • Early Childhood Arts and Culture
  • Work Experience- this is crucial as Montessori is a very hands on way of teaching.

Entry to this course is by direct application to the college. There are no previous academic requirements.

This is an intensive course delivered over Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm over 4 weeks.

Each week is split between the practical Montessori approach and theory learning with time spent learning the theory and practising the Montessori presentation skills for each module leading the students to their practical Skills Tests on week 4.

When the 4 week course has been completed, the students are then given a 6 month timetable to work on 6 Assignments which will demonstrate the understanding and theory underpinning each module. This will also include 50 hours work experience.

Week 1: Philosophy Practical Life

Week 2: Sensorial Education Literacy

Week 3: Montessori Mathematics Arts and Culture

Week 4: Revision Practical Skill Tests

Our tutor was passionate in her job and about spreading the philosophy.

 I wanted intensive training in a central location with the potential to get an internationally recognised qualification, quickly and this was provided by Portobello Institute. Full story.



This study option was perfect as I study intensely, complete the course and get my qualification during summer holidays. Full story
