Preparing to Work in Childcare

  • Online training with one-to-one tutor support.
  • Build your knowledge, skills and confidence.
  • Study at home in your own time.
  • Chat to your tutors at a time to suit you, including evenings and weekends.
  • An ideal starting point for a new career or further study.

With distance learning, you can retrain for a new career or develop new work skills in just three hours a week!There are no set class times, so you can fit study into your life in a way that suits you. You'll benefit from one-to-one support from an expert personal tutor who you can contact by email at any time. Your personal tutorial team is also available by instant chat up to 9pm each evening and throughout the weekend.

I've really enjoyed the course! I've learned a huge amount and feel much more confident about further training. After several years at home caring for my two children, I was really keen to train for a new career in childcare, but juggling everything is difficult. Studying online means I've been able to fit study around the kids and my part-time job. The tutors are supportive and help you to build your confidence at the same time as your knowledge. I now help out two days a week at my son's nursery - both I and the children love it, I feel as if I've found my niche! But I wouldn't have had the confidence to offer before.
