School of early years

Are you looking for a career working with young children?

The early years sector has lots of fantastic career opportunities available for those who want to work with children. If you are enthusiastic, patient as well as being a good team player, communicator and problem solver, then a career in this fast-growing sector is there for you.

We can offer practical early years courses at all of our campuses, that will give you the skills and confidence that employers are looking for.

Our courses start at Level 1 and you can study up to Level 3, which gives you ‘license to practice in the sector’ and then up to Levels 4 and 5 if you really want to advance your career into management, administration, teaching or owning your own nursery business.

A key aspect of studying early years is a placement, which we expect you to attend two days a week. We are able to help offer you a wide choice of supportive placements that will help you gain experience of working with children of different ages and give you extra employability skills.

Applicants enrolled for any Early Years course will be required to complete an online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application form.
