Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School
After looking around other colleges and the other campuses, Childcare and Education at London Road Campus was my favourite option. I have always enjoyed being around children and after College I will be working at Opportunity Pre-School. On this course I’ve learnt strategies to manage my work, coursework and personal life. Being allowed to do practical placements is really useful and it’s great to work with current practitioners in a current situation.
This course is linked to roles within the NHS.
