Childcare Level 3 - Faith Turner
Former School: St Bede's School
Faith initially joined East Surrey College on a School Links Hairdressing programme, but changed to Childcare Level 3 as she knew she wanted to work with children and "the course would introduce me to a wider range of jobs available."
The theory side of the course interests Faith, as she enjoys covering safeguarding topics and learning about how children develop. She commented that "there's a good mix between theory and practice on the course!"
To enhance her learning, Faith works in a nursery two days a week:
"I was nervous at the start, but the staff are so supportive and friendly - they always help me to manage my time and college work."
Faith is looking forward to Year 2, particularly to see how it is different to Year 1, and she is hoping to progress on to the Early Years FdA at ESC after that:
“I’m hoping to work towards a Level 5 or 6 qualification and aspire towards a management level career!”
