Thinking about a career in Early Years and Childcare?

Glasgow's colleges offer flexible training for people at all stages of their career.

· Still at school: Foundation Apprenticeships can start your college training and get you experience in the work place.

· Leaving school: Choose from a wide range of full and part-time study options, including National and Higher National Qualifications and Professional Development Awards. Modern Apprenticeship routes also provide an opportunity to study while you work and earn.

· Changing careers: There are flexible and part time training options for people who can't give up the day job.

· Already working with young children: Study for qualifications that will improve your skills and develop your career.


Glasgow also wants to diversify its Early Year and Childcare profession

· Men into Childcare: We can help you to train for a career in Early Years

· English isn't your first language: We need workers who reflect and support all our communities. We can also help you to improve your English.


You can train for a career in childcare at the three Glasgow Colleges and at campuses throughout the city.
