NVQ Level 2

Filton Avenue Nursery and Children’s Centre has been running a successful Level 2 training in Child Care and Early Development since 2009.

More than 40 people have completed the course and achieved the nationally recognized qualification with almost all of them going on to get jobs in a variety of different child care settings. One of our students went on to train as a teacher and started her first classroom teaching job not long after leaving us.

The course is open to all members of the local community. Basic language skills, a commitment to study and professionalism at all times are the only entry requirements. There are weekly teaching sessions run by members of the nursery staff and on-going tutorial support to help students meet the required standards. Placements working alongside the nursery teams gaining experience working with young children are also arranged. The course typically takes about 10 months to complete.

We are not currently taking applications for the course.
