The BEd [Early Childhood Education and Special Education (ECE&SE)] Programme prepares students for dual certification as both early childhood teachers and teachers of children with special educational needs in early childhood (birth–6 years). It includes (i) engaging academic courses; (ii) supervised practicum placements in multiple early childhood settings; and (iii) independent research experiences to help students facilitate the development and learning of children from birth to six years. Students will be guided by faculty members who have extensive practical and research experience in local and international early childhood settings. They will be supported to gain the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to work in both integrated early childhood settings and special child care centres. 

Graduates of the programme can:

  1. be eligible to register as Qualified Kindergarten Teachers;
  2. be eligible for registration as as Child Care Worker and Child Care Supervisor under the Child Care Services Regulations;
  3. be considered as having acquired training on the One-year In-service Course in Special Child Care Work recognized by the Social Welfare Department;
  4. meet the academic qualifications required as kindergarten principals.
