After completing an application process, you will document your professional preparation and experiences. You will then receive a credentialing document indicating where you are on the Career Pathway. Once registered, you will be eligible to receive early care and education Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and the West Virginia Training Certificate in Early Care and Education. The West Virginia Training Certificate in Early Care and Education is awarded once you are credentialed on the Career Pathway and have completed 120 training hours.

7 Opportunities Ahead Completion of the Apprenticeship in program provides you with various opportunities to apply the credits earned in the program toward completion of a variety of degree programs including: The requirements for public school paraprofessional certification, The requirements for an associate degree in an early education field from selected West Virginia community and technical colleges, and The requirements for certification as an early education or preschool teacher at Marshall University or West Virginia University. You can find additional information on certification requirements online at: Where Can I Find a Degree Program? In an effort to be responsive to your needs, West Virginia schools and colleges offer a variety of educational degree options. An overview of each degree is below: Associate in Applied Science Degree Occupational Development, This two-year degree program allows you to combine college credit for training and experience gained through ACDS to earn an associate degree. (Credit is awarded when you complete the required college courses.) This degree requires general education coursework plus completion of ACDS classroom and on-the-job training. Often this degree is considered terminal because no additional degree is required for you to practice in the field. On the other hand, some institutions may award credit for ACDS toward advanced academic degree programs. Associate in Applied Science Degree in Early Childhood Development This two-year degree program generally requires course work in general education, in addition to math and sciences courses. Some credit may be awarded for ACDS coursework. Upon graduation, you may practice in the field, or use this degree as a stepping stone into another degree program. Associate in Arts Degree in Early Childhood Development This two-year degree program generally emphasizes the arts, humanities and social sciences and prepares you to transfer to a four-year degree program. Typically most classes are in general education course work. three Taking the Next Step

19 What Financial Help is Available? Often, the cost for college and training can be a barrier to your career goals. Most students receive some kind of financial help to help pay for the cost of their education. There are federal and state financial aid programs to help you pay for college level courses. A good place to start is the College Foundation of West Virginia website: where you will find information on how to plan, apply, and pay for a college education. There is a link for Financial Aid Resources for Adult Learners, which includes links to federal and state grants, scholarships, and loans. In addition, the following two programs offer scholarships specifically for degrees in early care and education: Child Development Scholarship Program College scholarships are available for child care workers who have successfully completed the Apprenticeship for (ACDS) program, or who are in the fourth semester of the program. To be eligible, students must be enrolled, or accepted for enrollment, in an undergraduate degree program in early childhood education or development in West Virginia. In addition, the student must be employed full time in a year-round licensed child care center in the state, or must be an approved in-home provider. T I P F O R S U C C E S S Take advantage of free trainings. The scholarship program provides awards for up to two 3-hour courses per semester to pay for tuition and fees, plus a stipend of $250 per course for books and related educational expenses, such as travel, parking or child care. Contact the Higher Education Policy Commission at for additional information and applications. T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood WEST VIRGINIA Scholarship Program River Valley Child Development Services offers scholarships for current and potential Pre-K teachers working in licensed child care centers who would like to obtain their associate degree or bachelor s degree in early childhood education. T.E.A.C.H. WV pays a large portion of tuition and book costs, a travel stipend each semester, partial reimbursement to the sponsoring center for paid release time, and a bonus for the recipient. The sponsoring child care center is responsible for a small portion of tuition cost, providing release time and a bonus or raise for the recipient. The recipient is responsible for a small portion of tuition and book costs and must make a one-year commitment to their sponsoring center following completion of the scholarship contract. Application forms are available at: under the T.E.A.C.H. WV link, or by calling , ext Application forms are also available at community colleges or universities offering an early childhood education program. fifteen Taking the Next Step

20 Apprenticeship for sixteen The following program offers scholarships to child care workers who are pursuing training in the ACDS program. Ann Nutt ACDS Scholarship Program This program awards scholarships to cover the ACDS registration fee. To be eligible, a student must be employed at least 20 hours/week working with children ages birth to 8 years old, and employed by a program that is currently registered with the United States Department of Labor or in the process of registering. For continued eligibility, the student must make a passing grade in the coursework. Applications are available by calling , ext In addition to special scholarship programs in early care and education, child care workers may get additional funding from the following grant programs, which are based on financial need. Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student (HEAPS) Grant Program This program is designed to enable West Virginia students with financial need attend college on a part-time basis. Grants are awarded each year by the participating institution based on the student s eligibility and the availability of funds. In some cases, child care workers may receive a Child Development Scholarship and a HEAPS grant. Questions about this program may be addressed to the Financial Aid Office of the institution you plan to attend. Federal Pell Grants Program Pell grants are awarded to students on the basis of financial need. These grants are considered the foundation of federal financial aid, to which other aid (such as the Child Development Scholarship or HEAPS) may be added. Generally, Pell grants are awarded only to undergraduate students, but, in some cases, students who have earned a bachelor s degree may receive a Pell grant if they are enrolled in a teacher certification program. Grant amounts are dependent on: the student's expected family contribution (EFC); the cost of attendance (as determined by the institution); the student's enrollment status (full-time or part-time); and whether the student attends for a full academic year or less. T I P F O R S U C C E S S Apply to FAFSA regardless of your income to help pay for college costs. Your First Step to Financial Aid Getting financial aid starts with the FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID or FAFSA. By filling it out, you apply for the U.S. Department of Education's federal student aid programs, the largest source of student aid in America. In many cases, the FAFSA is required for eligibility to state financial aid programs, such as HEAPS, and also programs at your school. It is recommended that you complete the FAFSA online at More help is available online, and you'll get a response within 3-5 days, rather than 2-3 weeks by mail.
