Training & Employment Childcare Programmes (TEC)
TEC is an overarching childcare programme specifically designed to support parents on eligible training courses as well as certain categories of parents returning to work, by providing subsidised childcare places. The TEC Programme provides childcare support for parents on certain education and training courses (CETS), parents working on Community Employment programmes (CEC), and also for families on Family Income Support (ASCC).
The TEC Programmes include:
Childcare Education and Training Support Programme (CETS)
The CETS Programme provides childcare to training course participants on courses provided by the Local Education and Training Boards (ETB, formerly FAS and VEC) and secondary schools.
After-School Child Care Programme (ASCC)
The ASCC is administered by Pobal on behalf of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) and provides afterschool care for primary school children for certain categories of working parents and parents on DEASP employment programmes (not including Community Employment).
Community Employment Childcare Programme (CEC)
The CEC is administered by Pobal on behalf of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) and provides childcare for children of parents who are participating on Community Employment schemes.
