Bethany, Early Years

Having been at Guildford since 2019 when I began Level 2 Health, Social and Childcare, I am pleased to have now progress to the Level 3 Technical Diploma in Childcare and Education.

I really enjoy my course and the topics we are learning, which enhance my understanding and knowledge for my placement.

It’s wonderful that my skills learnt from college become directly transferred into real life experiences helping people.

I am proud to have passed my Level 2 in Health, Social and Childcare, as it has paved the way for me to progress into areas I find even more interesting.

The focus on placements has been beneficial as it has given me opportunities; my current placement at Guildford Nursery and Family Centre has offered me a job!

I am looking forward to beginning my role beyond the placement, as the staff are welcoming and I feel part of an interconnected and caring team! Also, I like the provision at my new work place, as they provide the children with access to the outdoors, as they value the creativity and play it brings.

Further, this setting offers me the chance to do training and develop my skills so I get the chance to further my learning within my practice.

In the future I would like to be a Nursery practitioner and I am excited to say I am on way!
