Childcare Employment & Training Support (CETS) scheme
The objective of the TEC Programmes is to support parents on eligible training courses and eligible categories of parents returning to work, by providing subsidised childcare places.
The TEC Programmes are:
- Childcare Education and Training Support programme (CETS)
- After-School Child Care programme (ASCC)
- Community Employment Childcare programme (CEC)
The CETS Programme formerly catered for FAS and VEC training course participants and now provides childcare on behalf of the Local Education and Training Boards and Secondary Schools.
The ASCC is administered on behalf of the Department of Social Protection (DSP) and provides afterschool care for primary school children for certain categories of working parents and parents on DSP employment programmes (not including Community Employment).
The CEC is administered on behalf of the Department of Social Protection (DSP) and provides childcare for children of parents who are participating on Community Employment schemes.
If a parent considers them eligible for the subsidy, please speak to Breda or Martina for further information.
