Training is an important part of the CE experience. Those who complete the programme will leave with a professional qualification that will enable them to find employment in their chosen field. However, this is often the most challenging aspect for some, particularly for those who haven’t been in a classroom for many years or whose previous experience with education was a negative one. If this is the case, it may help to share with you the experiences of some of those who are now on the scheme and who felt the same way when they started.
“I have found the CE scheme very beneficial and rewarding. I have a better outlook on Childcare now. I have learned so much from doing my assignments, constantly gathering new information along the way. My workplace experience has been excellent. Everyone is friendly, helpful and understanding”…2nd year childcare learner
“I’ve gained a lot of experience while on CE and the training has really helped my confidence. Now I am nearly a qualified childcare practitioner all thanks to CE and my supervisor”…2nd year childcare learner
