Part Time

If you are interested in working with children and young people, or are looking to develop existing skills to progress your career, we deliver a range of courses to suit your needs.

Learning with our experienced tutors, our qualifications allow you to set up a home-based childcare setting, join the Early Years Workforce as a qualified practitioner or become a Teaching Assistant. For existing practitioners looking to expand their knowledge, we offer internationally recognised qualifications, suitable to help progression towards a more senior position.

Our flexible course offering includes face-to-face learning, with some courses also available as an apprenticeship which incorporates on-the-job training with weekly classes.

 

“I feel that if you have worked in the role that you are teaching, you can give examples and relate your topic and you see a light bulb moment with the learner. The best thing about teaching is the positive comments that you get from the learners when they feel you have supported them through a tough time, when they have passed their course or understood a particular topic that they have been struggling with. It makes you appreciate your job.”

- Jackie Wilson, Childcare & Early Years Tutor
