Childcare

A career in childcare will open the door to a world of possibilities.

This hugely important vocation could see you play a part in creating the foundations of a child’s behaviour, education and aspirations.

If you have a natural affinity with children and want to develop that into a career then our childcare course will equip you with all the practical skills required to progress in to a job.

You will study child development and communication as well as working with children in a variety of roles. The course will cover child health, playing and learning, safeguarding, craft activities and supporting children learning literacy and numeracy in the early stages.

Work experience plays a huge part on this course with placements available in nurseries and schools, all of which will enhance your learning experience and build your confidence, readying you for the workplace.

Our courses are tailored to you

All you need to do is apply for the subject of your choice and we will work out the level of course with you, using your predicted and actual GCSE results and other qualifications.

Maths and English are essential subjects, if you missed out on gaining an A-C grade at school these will be studied alongside your main course to give you more opportunities in the future.
Whatever level you need to start at, if you just missed out on a grade or if you need more stretch and challenge, our courses will be tailored just for you to ensure your learning success.

We offer Level 2 and 3 courses in childcare.

What next?

UCAS points are available upon completion of the Level 3 course. You could choose to study for a foundation degree in early childhood studies.
