Childcare 

All of our Childcare courses during 2020/21 will be delivered online, via zoom and an e-learning platform.


Becoming a Childcare Practitioner

This free, 10-hour course delivered over 5 weeks is suitable for anyone interested in becoming a childcare practitioner or already volunteering in an early years establishment such as a nursery, pre-school foundation unit or as a childminder. It will help you to decide if working in childcare is right for you before committing to progressing onto a qualification. This course has been designed as an introduction to Level 1 Award in Caring for Children or the Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner.

Please note that this is not a qualification course but you will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

 What will I learn?

In this course you will learn about:

  • Importance of play for children

  • Healthy lifestyles

  • Keeping children safe

  • Physical care needs

  • Next steps available to you to becoming a childcare practitioner.

There are no specific requirements to join this course, other than a basic level of English.

N.B. We are not currently offering the Level 2 or 3 Certificate qualifications as this requires a voluntary placement or paid role in a nursery and due to current COVID restrictions it is not easy to gain a voluntary placement and visits for observation of practice in school are restricted.
