Early Years student Katie Ellam
Nineteen-year-old Katie Ellam has always wanted to work with children and chose to study for her BTEC National Level 3 Childcare qualification at college to help her achieve her dream of becoming a support worker within a school.
She said: “The course is really good. I’m learning new things every day and having new experiences all the time as we go on so many placements in schools, children’s centres and nurseries. The tutors are lovely and they treat you like an adult.
“I started at college on a Level 1 Childcare course but am now going on to university to do Deaf Studies, Special Needs and Inclusion.”
