This course is designed for learners who wish to gain the skills and knowledge needed to work in a variety of childcare settings. Roles might include: crèche leader, childminder, nursery officer, teaching assistant in school/day nursery or a private nanny to a family.
You will complete a 90 credit Diploma over the two years with an option to complete the full Extended Diploma within this time or over a third year (to be agreed with course tutor).
Work experience forms an integral part of the course allowing you to put the skills you have learnt in the classroom into practice. Work experience will take place on alternate weeks throughout the course.
The full Extended Diploma would allow you to then progress to Higher Education.
