Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) #early #childhood #education, #study #early #childhood


#

Programme overview

In this field-based, practical programme you will develop the skills to become a competent, informed and reflective early childhood teacher who is committed to young children and their learning and development. We believe people learn through participation and we value the experience and insight you’ll gain from working in early childhood centres. There will be plenty of opportunities to relate these experiences to theory during campus sessions. When you graduate, you will be eligible to become a registered teacher in licensed early childhood education centres.

  • Teacher registration: once you’ve completed this degree, you can apply for teacher registration with the Education Council of Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ Teachers Council)
  • We aim for informed and reflective teaching based on observation and understanding of how people learn
  • A thorough grounding in educational theory and relevant practice of teaching and learning, child development, relevant te reo and tikanga M ā ori and working with children and their families in Aotearoa New Zealand
  • Emphasis on teaching practice: you’ll be working (paid or voluntary) in a licensed early childhood centre for at least 12 hours per week during the programme
  • Experience teaching in a range of centres: each year you will also take part in a practicum, working full-time in an early childhood education centre for 37.5 hours per week
  • A strong emphasis on the New Zealand early childhood curriculum document, Te Wh ā riki. and a bicultural and sociocultural approach to learning
  • Acknowledgment of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, which prepares you to implement te reo M ā ori me ona tikanga in your teaching practice
  • A focus on research: you’ll develop an understanding of research methodologies with a particular emphasis on action research (self-study) in an early childhood setting
  • Part-time study options are available. Like full-time students, part-time students will need to work (paid or voluntary) in a licensed early childhood centre for at least 12 hours per week during the programme but study time will be part-time. Email Lee-Anne Turton (Academic Leader) or Lisa Helmling (Lecturer) for more information on how to apply for the part-time programme.

Associate of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant #associate #of #applied #science

Associate of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant

Associate in Applied Science (AAS) programs are designed to provide preparation for entry level employment and are not intended for transfer. Certain courses in AAS degree programs may be accepted by a four year college or university for transfer credit in an associated field of study.

  • To learn more about the faculty and staff of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program, click here .
  • To see Jefferson College of Health Sciences Catalog, with the Occupational Therapy Assistant section beginning on page 131, click here .

To view the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program “Online Information Session” click here .

Following viewing of the Online Information Session, a short quiz must be taken and submitted. These two components are part of the OTA Program application process. For further information regarding the admission requirements, please scroll down.

The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at Jefferson College of Health Sciences is the oldest OTA program in Virginia, established in 1992.

Our small class size (average 25 students) allows for more individualized instruction and hands-on participation in the classroom. Students range in age from recent high school graduates to individuals returning to school to prepare a second career. These differences in age and life experiences make for lively discussions in classes as we explore different roles people assume throughout their life span. Awareness of cultural diversity is an important tenet of the profession and our student body reflects this diversity.

Philosophy and General Program Information

Our faculty believes students learn best by participation in active learning experiences. As a result, lectures may involve student presentations followed by labs where new techniques can be practiced. Our faculty to student lab ratio of 1 to 12 allows the faculty to get to know students personally. Involvement in professional activities and associations allows for more interaction both personally and professionally in the development of leadership and advocacy.

Part of the education process in this program is for the students to experience hands-on patient interactions. Fieldwork experiences provide these opportunities. Our academic fieldwork coordinator places students in facilities where their clinical skills can best be developed. Fieldwork placements can be local or long distance depending on availability.

Student may take all the courses required for this degree at Jefferson College, or may transfer any of the general education courses from other institutions, as deemed appropriate by the Registrar. All professional courses (those with OTA prefixes) must be taken at Jefferson College. Graduates from the OT Assistant program have consistently scored higher than the national average on the national certification examination.

Our graduates are generally employed within six weeks of graduation. It is not unusual for employers to contact our OTA Program for recruitment purposes. The program maintains a strong reputation for excellence throughout the state of Virginia and the nation.

The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, Maryland, 20814-3449. The telephone number for ACOTE (c/o AOTA) is 301-652-2682 or (301-652-AOTA). The web site link is www.acoteonline.org

Click here for the general information on admissions requirements.

OTA Admission Requirements:

Certification and Licensure Information

Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapy Assistant, administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the graduate will be a certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA). In addition, most states require licensure to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT certification examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure. It is recommended that OTA program applicants who have a felony conviction apply for “Early Determination and Character Review” to determine their potential to sit for the national certification examination.

Information about the National Certification Exam can be found at http://www.nbcot.org .

Information about licensure for Virginia Occupational Therapy Assistants can be found at http://www.dhp.virginia.gov/medicine/ .
