In line with Government advice and guidance we plan to have 100% face to face delivery for all Further Education courses for 16 - 18 year olds from September 2021.
If you're looking to work in an early years environment - such as a nursery or as a childminder - this course will help you develop the skills and knowledge for a rewarding career.
This two-year course covers all aspects of children’s learning and development, with a 750-hour work placement providing valuable practical experience to support your chosen career aspirations.
Successful completion of this course provides the UCAS Tariff points required to progress to higher education.

Teaching and Learning Methods
This is a full-time course, involving 3 days a week spent at College and 2 days a week on work placement in a childcare or nursery setting.
We will also expect you to spend at least 3 hours a week on independent learning.
At College, teaching is delivered in groups and supported by group activities and discussions. One-to-one support is also provided to help with completing written assignments.
When you start the course we will assign you a progress tutor who will support you throughout your time here.
Their role is to help you in setting academic and personal targets, identifying career plans, developing employability skills and monitoring your progress to make sure you realise your full potential.
Industry Placement and Field Trips
Other Costs and Equipment Needed
All staff involved in the delivery of further education courses within the College are approved to teach the subjects and modules they deliver. The approval process ensures that staff delivering a given programme are appropriately qualified and, where appropriate, possess relevant technical and industrial experience and professional practice.
