‘...students use well-defined targets and clear areas for development to help them to improve subsequent pieces of work.’ Ofsted, 2018

Would you like to work with children or young people?

There is always a demand for high-quality childcare professionals and our courses give you the skills and qualifications you need to start your career in childcare. We have a range of childcare training courses, from level 1 up to Foundation Degree courses and apprenticeships.

The childcare market is worth £5.57 billion to the UK and it is growing all the time. As the costs of living gets more expensive and more people with children have to go to work to support their families, parents are becoming increasingly reliant on childcare services to help care for their children whilst they are at work.

Our childcare courses will ensure you not only have the childcare qualifications you need for your career in childcare but the experience too. We work closely with local childcare providers and schools for work placements, and students also have the opportunity of working in the college's own nursery which was awarded Grade 1 Outstanding by Ofsted at the last inspection. This gives our students a real insight into an outstanding setting and they can take this knowledge and experience with them to employers following their success on their college course.

Whilst on a childcare course at South and City College Birmingham you will learn from tutors who have worked in the childcare industry and who have a wealth of experience to pass on to you. You will be learning in a first-class environment, which has been proven by our excellent success rates.
