Childcare, Education and Youth Work
Why choose us?
Working with children and young people is a hugely rewarding career. Every child is unique, every family different, and no two days are ever the same. There is always a demand for high-quality care professionals and our courses can help you get the skills and qualifications you need to start your career.
Our tutors have held successful careers within the childcare, education and youth work industry, and have worked for organisations such as Barnardos, local schools,nurseries and local authority youth services, so you can have confidence in knowing that you will be learning from the best.
You will benefit
At St Helens College we offer you the opportunity to work within a real, working nursery and will also help you to secure external work placements in schools, nurseries and youth clubs.
You will succeed
Follow in the footsteps of our previous students who now work with local councils, nurseries and charities. Some of our students have even gone on to secure Au Pair work in countries like the USA and Canada. Others have decided to continue with their education and progressed onto university to further develop their skills and knowledge.
You will stand out
To help you stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs or further qualifications, we encourage and support you in securing work placements. We also strongly believe in rewarding our students for their good work and hold award ceremonies in which we celebrate your achievements.
Through studying childcare and education at St Helens College, you will have the opportunity to build new network links, friendships, life-long skills and relevant knowledge.
