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, all lessons will be delivered virtually.

Virtual classes are NOT just a regular webinar or online training solution; they are live and highly interactive trainer led/supported learning experiences…and are virtually the same as being in a face-to-face classroom environment (but with students remaining safely in their own homes).

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

We promise to get our face-to-face students back into the classroom as soon as possible.
