Teaching and inspiring children to reach their full potential is one of the most rewarding careers.
You will need patience in abundance and a warm, friendly nature as you encourage the children in your care to explore and learn.
We offer a range of industry qualifications at Rotherham College and Dearne Valley College, working in partnership with infant schools, specialist schools, private nurseries, children’s centres and childminders.
Our excellent industry placement opportunities will provide you with first-hand experience of working in the sector, allowing you to apply theory into practice and gain an insight into the many available roles in childcare.
During your course you will study subjects such as communication with children and adults, safeguarding, health and safety, childhood illnesses, play and learning. You will also take part in practical activities such as making story sacks, cooking for children, healthy eating, painting and displays.
Outside the classroom you will also have the opportunity to manage fundraising events.
