If you want to develop and shape the next generation in a fun and rewarding job, then a career in Childcare and Education could be the perfect path for you.
With our industry-approved qualifications, you’ll teach, support and develop children as they progress through the stages of early childhood.
On our courses, you’ll learn through a combination of work placements and classroom sessions. To ensure that you gain the hands-on experience needed in industry, we work with a range of employers, such as:
- Infant schools
- Specialist schools
- Children’s hospitals
- Day nurseries
Whilst you study with us you’ll learn key skills including communication with children and adults, safeguarding, health and safety, childhood illnesses, play and learning.
You’ll also take part in practical activities such as making story sacks, cooking and healthy eating for children, painting and displays. You will also learn how to change a nappy and wash a baby safely. You’ll have the chance to hear from industry experts in guest sessions and learn more about the variety of careers and settings available in childcare.
Outside of the classroom you’ll have the chance to manage fundraising events and take part in inter-college competitions to showcase your skills.
