Hi

I would love to train in that direction

Can anyone tell me how to start and what qualifications I need or what to aim for.

Thanks

My DH is just about to start his training placement. He did it through our local further education college so they are a good place to start. He's got A levels but I don't think you need any formal qualifications to get started. Give your local college a call and see what they say. smile

Nvq 2/3 in childcare related subject (depends on age group) or cache diploma think that is full time. Nvq is part time but you need a placement as well

You can start by volunteerining at the school you want to work in. Get to know the routine, children, ways of teaching. That could be your placement too.Nymph's advice then.
