Horizon Campus introduces E-learning for Early Childhood Education Degree

Horizon Campus that carries a strong reputation for excellence and in topping the list for offering the best degree in Early Childhood Education in the country, recently introduced e-learning mode for this well renowned degree due to popular demand.
The CEO of Horizon Campus, Ajitha Wanasinghe said that an encouraging demand for early childhood educators prevailed at present. He said that both national and international shortages in the early childhood education sector have been prevalent for years and looked set to continue. Today, with a renewed focus on the importance and benefits of a strong pre-school education, and with the recognition that early childhood educators can make a difference in the lifelong learning experiences of their students, the field of early childhood education was growing at a relatively faster rate for the first time in several decades, thereby making the outlook and prospects even better for the next generation of teachers.
He said that today’s aspiring early childhood educators had a robust career ahead of them, with a wave of new jobs and opportunities to advance and grow professionally within individual employment settings across the sector. Henceforth, it was decided by the management of Horizon Campus to conduct this part time program virtually.
Those who obtain their undergraduate degree in early childhood education have career options open to them, with great employment prospects that include a good balance of both public teaching positions and private institutions and even overseas. This means that an investment made in training and education in this field will be rewarded with plenty of career opportunities, as there is virtually zero unemployment in this field, which is not expected to change any time soon.
The normal career path in early childhood education will generally follow an upward path of promotions. One can start by working in a preschool and then move on to designing curriculum or working for private education companies that will need the guidance of teachers to develop learning tools and products aimed at young learners and can even eventually move to a policy or management position in education.
He added that Horizon Campus’s Early Childhood Education Degree, keeping in line with industry requirements, covers a comprehensive curriculum that gives a foundation in specialty training in childhood development, literacy, diversity and behaviour. Through the coursework, participants will learn how to establish expectations, develop teaching plans, work with developmental needs, partner with parents, and set their students on the path to a life full of success. The aim, he said, was to enable their students to become outstanding early childhood teachers, decision makers, intellectual and ethical leaders.
He said that by gaining the right qualifications and with plenty of concentrations and many career avenues to pursue, early childhood education today is stated as a really great choice for those who relate well with children and have a passion for teaching and has become a career for life, with opportunities for progression into leadership positions in the field of education.
