If you want to develop and shape the next generation in a fun and rewarding job, then a career in Education and Childcare 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:
- Primary schools
- Day nurseries
- Children’s hospitals
- Specialist schools
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’ll have the chance to hear from industry experts in guest sessions and learn more about the variety of careers and settings available in Education and 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.
