“I love this course! The lecturers make sure you learn everything possible to help you in your career as a childcare practitioner and the lessons are fascinating. We learn about important theories and legislation regarding childcare and get to go on some great work placements. Thanks to the course, I now know where my career is heading and plan to go to university to study special educational needs.”
