The application process for the increased ECCE capitation, funded by DCYA, in recognition of the leadership and mentoring role that will be delivered by the Inclusion Co-ordinator, during the 2019/2020 pre-school year is now open.
Applications must be made electronically via the Programmes Implementation Platform (PIP).
An ECCE provider, who is or employs an existing graduate can apply immediately.
An ECCE provider, who is or employs a new graduate i.e. graduating in October 2019 can apply when final exam results have been notified by Mary Immaculate College (expected late Sept)
Please note as per the recently published AIM Rules document from the 2019/2020 ECCE programme year, it is no longer be possible for Inclusion Coordinator additional capitation payments to be backdated to be beginning of the programme year if the application is submitted late in the programme year.
To support services to adjust to this rule change, for the 2019/2020 programme year, the additional capitation can be backdated to the beginning of the programme year provided that the application form reaches Pobal by 31st October 2019. This will also accommodate new LINC graduates whose graduation verification will only reach Pobal by late September.
If an Inclusion Coordinator is on extended leave i.e. maternity, sick leave at the beginning of a pre-school year, an application should only be submitted once the Inclusion Co-ordinator returns to the pre-school setting.
