Have you considered a career in education? Would you like to become part of one of the most fulfilling careers in education? Do you want to invest in the future of the Overstrand community?

Early Childhood Education is key to any child’s academic future and  is regarded throughout the world as the phase where effective teaching and learning can bring about major transformation, not only in the life of the individual child but ultimately also in the whole community and country at large. ECD is the phase between birth and Grade R (0–5 years), where the child’s foundational cognitive, physical and emotional  development takes place.

We are looking forward to assisting and support students who register, via the HVT, for the STADIO Faculty of Education (previously Embury) Distance Learning Higher Certificate in Pre-school Education.

STADIO Faculty of Education has entered into an agreement with HVT to provide additional academic support at the HVT Hub.

The envisaged learning outcomes include a sound knowledge of the holistic development of the pre-school child, planning and implementation of programmes to facilitate healthy development, how to manage a classroom effectively and the skills needed to manage an ECD centre. Students will be guided through blended learning by qualified and experienced tutors to integrate their theoretical knowledge with practical experience in pre-school centres.
