I started at Shipley College last year on the Childcare Level 1 course and really enjoyed it and have now progressed to Level 2. I really like working with children and have spent a lot of time helping out friends and family who have young children. I like that Shipley College is a small college and can give me the support I need to do well in my career. One day I would like to work in a nursery and am really looking forward to the placements.
