Fortunately, it’s also one where opportunities are excellent. In fact, in the last five years, employment increased at an incredible rate and this is expected to grow even more.

Aside from local employment, qualified nannies are also welcome in countries like USA, UK and France so if you are looking for international work opportunities, this is a good field to start. As a nanny, you must have a genuine love for children, possess good communication and organizational skills, can work without the need for supervision, and has the patience and maturity for these responsibilities:

• Caring for infants and young kids (Feed, wash and dress them)
• Maintaining or developing approved routines
• Keeping children safe from hazards and dangers
• Taking kids to school and other activities
• Planning and preparing nutritious meals
• Planning and supervising outings, activities and creative play

It is also extremely beneficial should you simply wish to fast track your studies (and career) and not be locked into a timetable.

Places are limited, in demand and entry into the course is on a first come first served basis.

• Study at your own pace whenever and wherever you are
• Study a course that was designed in consultation with the industry
• Have access to a tutor who works in the industry you are training for

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
