Careers in Early Years, Childcare and Playwork

Interested in working with children, young people and their families?

Would you like a career that is challenging, rewarding, important and most of all enjoyable? There are a range of professional occupations available, providing exciting opportunities and a  rewarding career.

Before you commit to any training or employment, we recommend that you consider accessing a careers guidance interview and resources available via the National Careers Service (External Website).


If you are interested in caring for children in your own home, then it is essential that you attend an initial free 'Childminding Information Session', which will help you to decide if childminding is a suitable career for you, before making a commitment.  Information regarding the local authority approved training course will be provided, which you must complete before you can register with Ofsted, as specified in the Early Years Foundation Stage 2012, 3.23.

For more information or to book a place on any of the Information Sessions, you can call the Recruitment Team for Early Years and Childcare on 01905 822658 / 822659 / 822660,
