IN LINE with rising demands for improvements in early childcare services, the Ministry of Education has made it a mission to ensure that all Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) educators have the minimum qualification of Diploma in Early Childhood by 2020.

SEGi College Penang has embarked on a journey to produce more qualified ECCE educators with its internationally recognised Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE).

Entry requirement is SPM/STPM/UEC. The programme with its flexible learning hours is suitable for in-service teachers and can be completed within two-and-a-half years.

Graduates can then opt to further their studies with the three-year honours degree programme in Early Years Education (BA EYE) in collaboration with University of Greenwich, UK.

Degree students will have the opportunity to undergo teaching practicum (Workplace Experience) in both Taska and Tadika.

Financial support is available through EPF, PTPTN, Affin flexi-payment and rebates.
