The practical element of my course has been most useful for me. We were able to do a six month placement which supplemented my theoretical learning and helped develop employability skills, I’m now going on to a Level 3 Apprenticeship with Pebbles Nursery in ClactonLouise Stringer – Early Years, progressed from Clacton Coastal Academy
Our courses are delivered by tutors with a wealth of experience in the childcare sector and their professional expertise is valued by our students. There are excellent facilities including well-equipped classrooms with interactive technology and resources for an early years setting. Further Education qualifications are designed to build the knowledge and skills needed when working with children and young people from birth to 19 years. Work experience is a significant element of childcare and health and social care study programmes.
As well as Further education courses, students can also choose to undertake an Apprenticeship allowing them to earn while they learn, as well as gaining first-hand experience in a childcare environment.
