Accredited Educare/ECD Training Course
Long distance learning
As Chairperson of the East London Pre-School Care Association (founded in 1976), Mrs Lynne Hobbs was approached by many of Members of the Association and many other members of the public to consider offering a course that would be affordable and fairly short in content but suitable for the needs of Educare and Pre-School teachers.
About the Course
Lynne started compiling the course in 1991 and began offering courses on a three month, part time basis. It has proved to be very popular and extremely successful and she has subsequently presented the course to the Royal Swaziland Sugar Corporation and to an organisation called "The Loaves and Fishes Network", where Dr Trudy Thomas, former MEC for Health, Eastern Cape, South Africa, is presently Chairperson and to other large organisations. Careful planning and thought has gone into the contents of the course as due to the time constraints, only the basic requirements have been included - although the course is very comprehensive in content.

To date, Mrs Lynne Hobbs has presented this course to a large number of students and most of these students have obtained employment due to having the course certificate. Many have been extremely successful by having been promoted to the management of large Educare and Pre-School Centres. Many have successfully operated their own Educare and Pre-Schools. Many students have been able to aupair overseas due to completing the course. As Lynne has received so many enquiries from all over the country regarding the course, she has decided to offer the course via correspondence.

Many students register for this course simply because they believe that it will assist them in raising their own children.

The course, covers all the basic requirements, to ensure that everyone who completes the course, will have all the necessary knowledge required to successfully work with young children up to Grade 1 and to assist in being a good, professional Educare and Pre-School teacher.

All learners who have successfully completed the private non-accredited course, as per the requirements, will receive an embossed certificate that has been recognised for many years within South Africa and even abroad. Learners who successfully complete the accredited course, will received official certificates and documentation with the accreditation details.
