AIM Level 1 – Application for Increased Capitation for services with new graduates of the LINC course is now open

Dear Service Provider,

The AIM Level 1 application process for the increased Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) capitation has now opened on the Hive for services with new graduates of the Leadership for INClusion (LINC). New graduates’ refers to those who are graduating in October 2022.  AIM Level 1 is funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY), in recognition of the leadership and mentoring role that will be delivered by the LINC Co-ordinator, during the 2022/2023 pre-school year. The process for existing graduates (those who graduated in previous years) was launched earlier in the summer.

All applicants are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible.  Applications received by 5pm on Friday 28 October 2022 will be awarded the additional capitation from the Inclusion Co-ordinator’s start date for the programme year.  Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as any applications received after this date will not be backdated. 

Applications must be submitted electronically via the Early Years HIVE portal.  Applicant guidelines can be found here.
