RTE has released the first interactive graphic showing how the Child Education Certificate will work and what it will cost.
The certificate will allow people to earn up to €100 per day by having children in primary, secondary and tertiary schools and earning a minimum of €150 per day after that.
The Child Education Certificates Office, which is part of the Department of Health and Social Protection, will publish a further update in the coming weeks to provide further information about the new scheme.
There are a range of different forms of child education certificates which have different costs and requirements.
The cost of the new Child Education certificate has been set at €300 per child per year for the first four years.
The minimum requirement for the Child Educators Certificate is €150.
In the new year, the cost of a child education qualification is set at a maximum of €600 per child and the cost per child of the Child Arts Certificate is set to be €1,300.
