LTTC-logo

Diploma of Educational Studies - Early Years Enrichment Enterprise
Accredited by London Teacher Training College (LTTC, UK)

Overview:

The integration of enrichment principles into the early childhood development is emphasized in this course. This is the fundamental backbone of the course that supports the teacher/ trainer in building the character of the participants, empowering them to be enthusiastic life-long learners. The enrichment aspect of the course helps the teacher/ trainer develop the mental stimulation, through visual, auditory & kinesthetic techniques, ultimately honing the skills needed in the development of the learners. A multitude of strategies are shared in the areas of oral enunciation and effective communication, grammatical usage, confidence building and different teaching styles. The oral component tackled the art of pronunciation, projection, word recognition skills, and communication techniques for readers of the early years. The language aspect included exploration of writing styles and lexicon precision. Teaching methodologies used concepts from Benjamin Bloom’s taxonomy and Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences that were shared via fun, interactive approaches. Classes conducted were primarily of a hands-on nature that helped the teacher/trainer utilize the enrichment techniques in unconventional ways in a classroom setting.
