A highly experienced and vocationally qualified team of staff support this area of learning. We have the expertise of qualified childcare practitioners, social workers, and primary school teachers in the teaching team. The tutors have high expectations of learners so that high achievement rates can be sustained. For example all our learners in 2006 passed their external examinations on their first attempt, many with high grades in Childcare. There are courses at all levels across all disciplines within this team. This means that learners are able to progress from one level to another, enter into employment or be accepted by universities of their choice.
