Practical Placement, Trainers and Delivery Methods


This course will include extensive ‘hands on’ practical placement within the children’s services industry.

Your trainers will assist you to find a suitable placement host and will also be available to offer you continued support and encouragement whilst you complete this practical component. We will also visit you at your placement site to assess your practical skills and provide you with any additional support and mentoring where required.

Practical Placement is unpaid; however, it is possible as you progress through the course and become more experienced, that you may be offered paid employment within a child care centre. When employed within a child care centre, you can contribute your regular paid hours towards your Practical Placement hours.

If you are currently employed within a child care centre, you can complete your placement hours in your place of employment (whilst getting paid!).

The contacts our students make throughout their practical placement experience often lead to permanent full-time or part-time positions.


Learn from the best!

Childcare classes are available virtually or face-to-face within a relaxed and supportive classroom environment. Our highly practical and interactive classes are conducted by first-class trainers who are dedicated to teaching and have extensive industry skills and experience.

Our small class sizes ensure that our trainers can work closely with you to personalise your learning experience, providing you with the help and support that you require every step of the way.

People with disabilities are encouraged to apply.



Until further notice, our Nationally Recognised Child Care Courses have migrated to virtual delivery where we can deliver regular Zoom lessons to you ‘live’ in your own home!

Virtual classes are not just ‘online training’; they are ‘live and interactive’ trainer led learning experiences where you will be able to hear and see your trainer guiding you through your regularly scheduled Zoom lessons, and you’ll be able to ask questions, and participate in activities etc. After each virtual class, your trainers will be available for the afternoon to offer support with your studies and answer any questions you may have.

Importantly, the only equipment you will need at home is your computer/laptop/iPad and access to the internet.

It is our intention is to resume face-to-face classes again as soon as possible (however virtual classes will remain available for those who may prefer to study from home).
