Taking the next steps in the childcare profession

An event aimed at people wishing to progress their careers in the childcare profession is being staged at West Nottinghamshire College at the end of April (28 April).

The event, entitled ‘My how you’ve grown’, has been organised by Aimhigher Nottinghamshire in conjunction with Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council and West Nottinghamshire College

It is aimed at people who are working towards their advanced apprenticeship in childcare or who are studying on a level 3 childcare course and are looking to progress onto higher education programmes.

There will be talks on career progression within childcare as well as individuals from Nottingham Trent University, the Open University, and Northampton University to advise on higher education pathways.

The event will provide individuals with further advice on how to progress to university level study and other work-based higher education options and will give people the opportunity to speak with college staff about part-time college study options as well as alternative ways of obtaining their Early Years Professional Status (EYPS).

Childcare workforce development officer at Nottinghamshire County Council, Charlotte Hurst, said: "The event is a fantastic opportunity for early years and childcare workers to assess which route of study is best suited to them as they look to progress in their career. 

“Nottinghamshire County Council supports the event as it encourages raising the standard of qualifications within the childcare sector, which of course will lead to high quality childcare and better outcomes for children."

People interested in attending the event on 28 April at 6.30pm at West Nottinghamshire College’s Derby Road site, should book a place via Stephanie Hoult on the college’s freephone number 0808 100 3626 ext 8286, or on email stephanie.hoult@wnc.ac.uk
