Biography

I have always wanted to work with children so this course helped me to achieve my goals of working with children full-time.

Going on placement was one of my highlights. Putting what I had learned in the classroom into practice in a real life setting was highly beneficial. I also enjoyed being with other people who had the same interests.

Part of my course was to undertake 800 hours of work experience working with children from ages 0–7, plus special needs. My experience was very enlightening and gave me the experience I needed to progress onto my university course. It also showed me what future careers I did and did not want to be in.

I plan to go to university to further my knowledge of early years and want to open my own nursery practice one day!

My advice for anyone thinking of taking this course is to fully embrace the placement experience as this is vital.
