The programme is incredibly fulfilling. I have learnt how to interact with children within a school structure and enjoy the challenges this has presented.
Amelia Rowntree Childcare Middlesbrough College
I absolutely love the course. It's so interesting and I learn something new every day. Not only that, the teachers are so supportive and you can tell that they genuinely care which is nice. They always make sure they see you 1-1 and cover any areas you need to focus on to improve.
