Childcare Dipolma Students

This follows on from last year’s success when three Childcare and Education Diploma students took up places at Brighton University to follows degrees in Teacher Training and two students (one male and one female) acquired places at the prestigious Norland College in Bath to become ‘Norland Nannies’ - following in the footsteps of a previous Varndean student who has just completed her final year and about to graduate as a ‘Norland Nanny’.

The NCFE CACHE Diploma is a two year vocational course, equivalent to 3 A Levels, in which the students undertake a series of coursework units on Health and Wellbeing; Legislation and Professional Practice; Play, Development and Learning for School Readiness, and Professional Development. They also have to complete 750 hours of work placement, as well as an extended 5000-word essay under controlled exam conditions.
