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

The Montessori pedagogy curriculum is delivered during weekend workshops which are held approximately once per month for 7 months. These workshops are held on a Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 4.30pm and are designed to give students the opportunity to practise with the Montessori materials.

The ECCE modules are delivered by blended learning with a seminar at the beginning of the module - students are assigned a tutor to support them throughout their studies.

The 4 modules to complete the ECCE level 6 Major award are theory based, we offer students the opportunity and convenience to study by blended learning. This approach is ideally suited to these modules as it allows a more flexible learning journey with students having up to 12 months to complete the remaining 4 modules. There is a calendar of workshops and students have a choice of when they wish to attend. As students have already completed the main Montessori method modules, generally these remaining modules are completed with ease however full tutor support is available with programme managers also available to meet and support students to complete assignments
