Portobello Institute is the Early Years sector’s educator of choice as our foundations lie in early years education since 1981.

Our early childhood care and education graduates understand that they are sculpting young minds and the future of society. They recognise the profound truth that their influence extends far beyond the present moment, leaving an indelible mark on generations yet to come. Our graduates significantly impact the early years sector working within county childcare committees, Pobal, DCEDIY, teaching on early years programmes and in many other roles. Successfully opening and running early years settings and Montessori schools have been the career choices of many of our graduates.

Portobello Institute is participating in the new Nurturing Skills Learner Fund Scheme 2024 (NSLF).

The new fund helps early years educators to upskill to level 7 and level 8 qualifications by covering a significant part of the cost.

The courses covered by the Nurturing Skills Learner Fund at Portobello Institute include:
