Course description

Access to HE: Childcare Level 3 Diploma

Our Access to HE: Childcare Level 3 Diploma course is aimed at those who wish to pursue a career in childcare but have little or no experience or relevant qualifications.

Access to Higher Education programmes are designed to prepare students aged 19+ for a Foundation Degree programme. This programme is designed for people who want to return to study after time out of education, building academic and personal confidence and developing the skills needed for real success on a degree-level course.  

Upon successful completion you will be awarded a diploma that will gain you entry to degree level study at a choice of most UK universities.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Applicants must be over 19 and have been out of full-time education for a year.

No specific qualifications are asked for, however a GCSE grade 4 (C) in English or maths would be beneficial.
