Working in childcare with Level 2 qualifications such as BTECs or GCSEs
Your work will involve helping more experienced staff to look after and supervise young children.
You will also prepare materials and learning resources and observe groups as part of your ongoing studies for a Level 3 qualification.
You could be working in a private nursery, a local authority childcare centre or a nursery attached to a school, college, university, hospital or other establishment.
Nappy changing, feeding, cleaning up play areas and supervising mealtimes are all part of the job.
Every day is different. It is all about the journey we make with the children, seeing them develop as they mature and watching them grow...
