Childcare and First Aid


Working with children offers a hugely rewarding career. Every child is unique, every family different, and no two days are ever the same.

We offer all the Children’s and Young People’s Workforce, Early Years Educator and Supporting Teaching and Learning qualifications for those right at the beginning of their child care and education career right up to the popular Foundation Degree in Early Years for experienced professionals.

Most courses are available on a full time and a part time basis. We have built excellent links with our local nurseries, playgroups, crèches and schools so we are able to advise students on securing placements, which are required for all the level 2 and 3 courses.

We also offer two short First Aid courses, one for childcare, and the other for emergency First Aid at Work. You can also study an Access course if you want to become a Paramedic.

First Aid for Early Years is suitable for all those who wish to work with children including parents, nannies and childminders. 

Emergency First Aid at Work is required in a low risk work place to comply with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regulations.
