Our main aim is to emphasise the importance of early childhood experiences by working consistently to increase the quality of day-care in Ireland through education, information and support of all involved in this sector.

FETAC Tutors:

NCNA are partnered by Canavan & Byrne for the delivery of all our FETAC programmes and the tutors have extensive excellent childcare, teaching and management experience. Pariticipants receive high quality tuition and learning, that will enhance the quality of your work and knowledge within your childcare setting.

The feedback on all NCNA Childcare FETAC programmes continues to be excellent and pariticipants can be assured of receiving high quality tutuition and learning that will stand to you throughout your career and it will also enhance the quality of your work and knowledge within your childcare setting.

Why should I do FETAC 5 instead of going straight onto a FETAC 6 course?

There is a significant difference in content, work load, assignments etc between the two
levels and from our extensive experience participants that have acquired their FETAC Level
5 Certificate find it much easier to cope with the step up as many that have tried to skip
Level 5 have struggled with moving straight onto a Level 6 programme. FETAC Level 6 is the
next step to a degree programme so it would be very wise to consider and attain your Level
5 Certificate before commencing Level 6 and build your knowledge, skills, experience and
learning in a more structured and mentored environment, NCNA will provide this for you.
