I had a look at the St Pats and Mary I sites for primary teaching, and you have to have your Leaving Cert to get into their B.Ed programmes as a mature student (23+). For any primary teaching qualification, you need the HC3 in Irish.
Is there a guidance councillor at the place you are doing the childcare programme? They could help, maybe there is a link course to the one you are doing now, that can progress onto a level 6/7 course.
I’m not sure how you’d get into teaching the childcare course, maybe ask you tutor and they could shed some light on it. Where did you do the level 5 course?
