Picture of our students with their certificates

Students secure university places and employment after achieving an outstanding 100% pass rate upon completion of their level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education.

Despite their anxious anticipation on the morning of the big day, the students were delighted upon learning from tutors that they had passed their course with exceptional results.

Hardworking student Emma, said, “I am so happy to have completed my course with an A*. I have secured employment with Happy Bunnies Nursery in St Helens working as a Nursery Practitioner.”

Another dedicated student, Jordan, also completed the course, achieving an impressive grade B. He said, “I am made up to have achieved the grade I needed to secure my place at Edge Hill University, to study Primary School Teaching in September. The tutors are so supportive and have helped me to get one step closer to achieving my dream career in teaching.”

Student Yasmine also achieved fantastic results, she said, “I was hoping for a good grade but I am thrilled to have achieved an A*. I am heading straight into work over the summer, working as Bank Staff at Mere Grange Nursery, before starting my exciting new position as a Nursery Practitioner there.”

The level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education is an advanced course designed to prepare students for the working world within an early years setting. By combining work placements with the theoretical aspects of childcare, students are challenged throughout the course to enable them to achieve their career aspirations.

Clare Webster, Head of Health, Sports and Public Services, said, “I am extremely proud of all of our students. The course is extremely difficult and they have given 100% commitment to their studies to ensure that they successfully completed their 700+ hour’s placement, coursework and external assessments.”

Claire continued, “This course is truly one of the toughest and yet the students have completed it with a smile on their face. They have even taken the time to raise money for charities, alongside committing themselves to College projects and excelling annually with their Colours of the World entry, a college-wide event that celebrates world diversity. I wish them all the very best of luck for the future.”

We wish our students every success as they take the next step towards their future. We also hope that their results have encouraged their self-belief and determination to succeed in the next stage of their journey.
