If you want to work with children and young people we offer a wide range of courses to equip you with specialist skills for a rewarding career in early years education.
You will gain valuable work experience in schools, nurseries and playgroups – giving you the chance to put what you are learning in the classroom into practice – and learn how to build relationships and trust with parents whilst maintaining professional boundaries.
You will practice making observations of children through the use of our extensive range of training DVDs, visit art galleries and parks to consider child-friendly activities, and meet professionals from a range of occupations at educational visits, childcare conferences and health fairs.
