The AIM Level 1 application process has now opened on Early Years Hive for services with new graduates of the Leadership for Inclusion (LINC) programme.  A ‘new graduate’ refers to any person graduating in October 2023.

All applicants are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible.  Applications received by 5pm on Friday 27 October 2023 will be awarded the additional capitation from the Inclusion Co-ordinator’s employment start date relevant to the 2023/24 programme year. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as any applications received after this date will not be backdated.  

Applications must be submitted via the Early Years Hive. Applicant guidelines can be found here. Prior to submitting the AIM Level 1 application, service providers must ensure that they have completed their ECCE programme readiness steps and activated the ECCE Funding Agreement
