Childcare

Childcare courses will provide you with these skills and other areas of expertise such as first aid, hygiene, health and safety, care skills and record keeping. At the same time, you will develop your practical skills, expand your theoretical knowledge and improve your confidence. Careers in this field involve hard work and long hours but they are very rewarding and provide varied opportunities for career development.

The Level 2 Certificate in Childcare is based around specific themes including the role of the Early Year’s Practitioner, legal frameworks, children’s play, development and learning.

The Level 3 Diploma enables learners to enter the workforce as Early Years Educators or access Higher Education. At this level, you will study a range of units to extend your knowledge and experience of supporting and extending children’s learning and development. A placement will be provided to ensure you link the theory learnt in the classroom to your professional practice in an early years setting.

The College has a Virtual Nursery and numerous resources to support your creativity, thought processes and practical experiences. At Level 3 you will be offered the opportunity to take part in a residential professional placement field trip. Within this trip, you will work within a range of settings including the first inclusive school in Romania. You will also visit orphanages with ideas to support and extend the children’s development. When studying the Diploma, you will be able to take part in various events such as a trip to Disneyland Paris which involves a mixture of educational seminars and fun. Each year the group chooses an activity to help raise funds for a local charity of their choice too.
