DYCA has published a list of qualifications that meet the regulatory requirements for working in the Early Years sector in Ireland. The list can be viewed on the DCYA website www.dcya.ie.
This list contains all qualifications which have been approved by DCYA. It also sets out the appropriate level of DCYA approval (i.e. meets regulatory requirements; eligible for Room Leader - standard capitation; eligible for Room Leader - higher capitation).
If your qualification is on the list you do not need to apply to DCYA for qualifications recognition. Just provide a copy of your qualification to your employer along with a copy of the page on the list on which it appears.
