A list of common queries is available here for your review. For any Higher Capitation application queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Proof of qualification eligibility must be submitted for each relevant staff member present in a Higher Capitation session. Prior to submitting an application, a service provider should ensure that staff members’ qualifications are eligible, by verifying these on DCYA Early Years Recognised Qualifications’ list.
If the qualification is not included on this list, the staff member should contact DCYA via email address email@example.com to apply for qualification recognition.
Please be advised that statements of results attached as qualification proof for staff members of Higher Capitation sessions, are only accepted when:
· QQI Level 5 and 6 qualifications are provided.
· The award is clearly confirmed
· Final results are confirmed (not provisional). If the statement of results is not clear on whether the award has been successfully completed, then further information should be requested to confirm (i.e. an official letter from the course provider). If an applicant is unable to confirm, they will have to apply for qualifications recognition.
