Early Years

Working with children can be one of the most rewarding career choices, and an early years course will give you a great choice of future career paths. You could be working as a nursery assistant in a children's nursery, be a private nanny in an executive household, work in education and teaching or as a child psychologist. Or, if you are business minded you could one day be owning and running your own children's nursery or centre! 

Whatever your interest, our courses can help you achieve your ambitions. 

At our Redbridge campus, you will be taught by teachers who have worked in the early years sector and are experienced in ensuring you learn all that you need to progress further, whether to continuing education or into employment. Our teachers have high success rates with their students and are rated as outstanding by Ofsted.

We will ensure that our early years courses will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to successfully build a career working with children and/or young people. You will get lots of hands-on training as part of your course.
