Q11. Will I be able to get a job on completion of this Diploma?
Most of our students have been able to get jobs right away. Some even get jobs while still busy learning our program. There are so many preschools in Indonesia but very few qualified, knowledgeable or trained teachers.
There is a BIG gap here. As a result, preschools are employing just about anybody who are willing to work with children.
There is no reason, why Preschools will select anyone else without the knowledge and skills if they can find some one like you who have completed this Diploma.
On completion of this Diploma in Montessori Education, you will have the knowledge and skills a preschool teacher needs to know and will be an asset for the school you work for.
