BEdECE (Part-time) Year 4 Student, 2018 HDECE Graduate
“ The programme enabled us to obtain all four professional qualifications, including the special child care worker license which is especially important to ECE professionals in Hong Kong. ”
From a very young age, I have known that I wanted to be a teacher. I started by doing some babysitting work and volunteering at Sunday school as well as the school where my mother teaches. It seemed to be a very natural path for me to be a teacher as I actually come from a family of teachers.
Before studying at YCCC, I have been working in an early childhood education sector here in Hong Kong for five years. Both my family and my boss encouraged me to get qualified. They told me that if I wanted to get further in the field of Early Childhood Education, I needed better qualifications. Unlike some other institutions that only offer three professional qualifications, YCCC’s Higher Diploma in Early Childhood Education enables us to obtain all four qualifications, including the special child care worker license, which is especially important to ECE professionals in Hong Kong.
Besides, YCCC creates a 100% English teaching and learning environment. This makes it very easy for students like myself, who do not speak Cantonese, to communicate at the college!
