The ADECL is for in-service early childhood (EC) professionals keen to take on the role of centre principals or supervisors. It will be offered at Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic from April 2016, and will replace the current Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education – Leadership (DECCE-L) programme.
The ADECL provides more flexibility due to its modular structure and the introduction of e-learning. This will enable in-service teachers to have better work/life balance.
Who can apply
ECDA-certified (L2) teachers who have at least one year of experience as a Senior Teacher in the EC sector and have met the competency level of a Senior Teacher.
Key features of this programme
- 850 course hours to be completed on a part-time basis over 1.5 years
