Course support and Enrichment

Due to the nature of these qualifications we have professionals from care and childcare who are visiting speakers and talk about their experiences in their chosen careers. The visiting speakers will also input knowledge to help meet certain criteria within the units that we will explore.
This is something that students always enjoy and often take the opportunity to question if that career path will be the one for them.

  • Attend punctually and regularly

  • Participate in class activity and discussions
