Children and Young People's Care and Education

Do you enjoy working with children? Do you have lots of energy? Are you good at listening? Are you patient?

Childcare is often demanding, but it is very rewarding. It requires a range of personal qualities such as an enthusiasm for working with children, an interest in their development and welfare, creativity and imagination.

You will need a sense of humour and good communication and interpersonal skills. If you have these qualities and want to do something worthwhile, then a childcare career is the one for you.
