CHILDCARE

The childcare sectors have always been popular with those who want to be involved in the development of children in their formative years. In 2018, the childcare market was worth £5.5 billion in the UK and continues to grow at a rapid rate so now is a perfect time to join this exciting and rewarding sector. 

City and Islington College has a variety of childcare courses for you to choose from, taught at our centre on Holloway Road. Our expert staff have a wealth of experience in the industry and you will gain practical skills by working closely with local childcare providers. Our aim is to equip you with the knowledge and abilities to deliver a first-class service as well as enable you to progress onto supervisory and management levels.

We provide every student with exceptional learning opportunities outside of the classroom with significant employers, including Bright Horizons, Busy Bees Nursery and UCL Day Nursery. Our courses ensure you are prepared to step into your chosen childcare career.

To be successful in this field, you will need to demonstrate a caring, compassionate regard for those in your care, be creative and energetic in your outlook and be prepared to work long hours. The average salary for a nursery asisstant is £18,699. As a child and early years officer, you could earn up to £24,523 working in London.
