Placement for childcare courses

  • Question
  • Updated 6 years ago
I want to believe that most teaching or childcare course should have at least 50hrs placement to be done as part of the assessment. Studying from home with no practical experience does not really help the situation as I am coming from a totally different background and wishing I had picked the CYPW course instead of the childcare and education which does not allow for placement. I would like to know if it is possible to switch my course to the CYPW as I only just registered last week. Thanks

I really don't get why this would not be a placement course wen the text keeps referring to placement and giving tasks on this!

Thank you for your prompt response. I called just the following day after I registered asking if it was possible to get a letter to the manager of the nursery I wanted to do my placement with, the gentleman I spoke to said there was nothing the college could do as it was not a placement course. I wasn't asking the college to help me get a place... I got one already all I need is for the college to just assist with a letter stating that I was studying that course and would like to do a placement with the nursery.

I have just called the SST and the gentleman has just said the same thing. Is there an email address I can write to directly explaining myself better?
