Learn the childcare essentials

Childcare is about much more than babysitting. Working in this field means being a professional caregiver with a breadth of knowledge and education you can use to help young people grow into healthy, happy adults. It means teaching children skills that will set them up for life. You’ll get career-boosting, industry-aligned benefits that you can carry far into your future. And it’s an excellent way to combine your knowledge, compassion, joy and excitement for childcare in order to make a lasting difference in the lives of future generations. This course is not delivered by The Career Academy – but OCA – one of our education partners.

THE COURSE REALLY SPARKED A HUGE CONNECTION WITH ME FOR FURTHERING PSYCHOLOGY WHICH I NEVER KNEW I HAD!

‘The ability to study online and in my own time was really appealing.’ Amali says. ‘It enabled me to complete the course within just a few months which was great.’ This isn’t uncommon for our students, as self-paced truly means self-paced, and some students end up moving through their courses faster than the duration which we have on the websites.
