Course description

Who should attend?

This course is for people working with young children and those working towards an early years educator qualification. This includes:

  • people working in day nurseries
  • people working in private nursery schools
  • people working in pre-schools
  • people working in before and after school clubs for children in the early years age group
  • childminders
  • carers of children at home.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
