Matthew Nicholls, Level 3 Children and Young People’s Workforce
I spend half the week at college and the remaining part of the week in a placement at a local school helping out in the nursery. I really enjoy my placement and I get lots of experience from it.
The course has taught me how to support and help children of all ages and it has helped me to decide what area I want to work in.
At part of the course I've also gained extra qualifications in Playwork and First Aid.
Not many men work in childcare, but I knew what I wanted to do and I enjoy it. To anyone that is thinking of studying childcare I'd say go for it.
