Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for Pre-School Teachers
The PCP operates in the Place-and-Train mode where ECDA-licensed Childcare Centres/ECDA-registered Kindergartens will employ trainees before commencement of the Programme. Successful trainees under this programme will receive a course sponsorship and monthly salary from employer, and are required to work at their place of employment and attend classes at KLCII during the full duration of the programme. As trainees are company sponsored, trainees are required to undertake a bond with their employers.
To qualify, trainees must:
- Meet the minimum entry requirements as stated above
- Be a new entrant to the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) sector in Singapore
- Not have worked at an ECDA-licensed Childcare Centre/ECDA-registered Kindergarten for more than 6 months from date of course registration
Note: This programme is applicable to Singaporeans & Singapore PRs only.
