Hi to anyone that can help me. I'm a complete newbie in every sense of the word and would appreciate any beginners advice you have to offer. I've just started studying the early years level 3 course and in all honesty already feeling a bit overwhelmed by the first assignment! I'm having a lot of difficulty understanding the whole placement issue and have been told it's essential at the start of my course to get one established (which I haven't yet). How do I go about getting a placement, what year groups should I be working with for the first module and what should I be doing during my placement and how long for? If anyone can please help me with understanding this a little better, I would really appreciate it & feel less like a hopeless case!! Thank you!
