TEC Update

The Childcare Education and Training Support (CETS) Programme is administered by the Department of Children & Youth Affairs.


The objective of the Programme is to support parents on eligible training courses and eligible categories of parents returning to work, by providing subsidised childcare places. The allocation of childcare places under the Programme is managed by the Department, via the City and County Childcare Committees (CCCs) and local childcare service providers. Payments in respect of CETS places are made to services by Pobal, based on information supplied by the Department
