College Course completed: BTEC Level 3 National Certificate in Children’s Play, Learning and Development
I have now finished my first Year at St John University studying primary education. it has been a great experience and I have learnt a lot of new things about being an adult. I have been on placement in a school where I did 456 hours over the year and I have loved getting to know the class and teaching my first lesson. It is a very rewarding experience. Kendal College built me up for the placement due to the experience I had in schools as part of the school by knowing how to deal with parents and how to build up a professional relationship with staff and the children etc. This is one pathway after college but I would highly recommend it and doing it via the College course as it deepens your understanding and provides you with opportunities and experiences so you can ensure that it is the right choice for you.
