Excellent

A job which you can truly love if you want to

Lots of Hard work which often is not appreciated

After having a careers interview just before my 17th Birthday, I decided to apply to a local college for a place on the course for nursery Nursing. They had changed the name to Childcare and Education at that time. They said that they usually had around 500 applications for about 80-100 places...

“An employer's point of view”

Great if you love kids...

could be a nightmare if you don't!

OK so I'm only a student, but I have had plenty of work experience, as well as training at college. I am working towards the BTEC National Diploma in Care, which requires you to complete 400 hours of work experience in various care settings. Wanting to work with children, my choices have mostly...
