‘I chose this course because I have always wanted to work with children and I knew it was something I was going to enjoy. Many of my family members had studied here before and told me it was a good college. I enjoy learning about how children develop and grow. After this course, I would like to become a primary school teaching assistant.’

Isha, 18, Children’s Play, Learning & Development

‘At secondary school, I did work experience with a primary school which inspired me to want to teach children. Before choosing to study Childcare here, I visited the college and talked to the staff who were very helpful. What I enjoy most about this course is that I can do a placement in a nursery and a primary school, which helps me decide which age i would like to work with. Once I have passed the course, I would love to go to university to study primary teaching and get a degree.’

Amina, 17, Children’s Play, Learning & Development
