I am going to do the Cache childcare diploma which I was accepted for a few weeks ago.
It isn't going to be easy, as it is fulltime and has placements where the hours may be long, but it is the area I want to work in, and I have to remember that that is more important than me just doing any old course to get me a job, that I then hate 6mths down the line.
I'm going to be assertive and research some different options for placements rather than just nurseries and schools. I'd like to do a placement in a hospital and with a health visitor as I know alot of their work is now undertaken by community nursery nurses.
If i start to slack or struggle to stay motivated, I will come back here and expect a kick up the back side.
I know where you live so if you do start slacking, it wont be a message on here you will get, ill be at your front door- with my biggest boots on
If you can push for placements with the health visitors, it would be a fantastic opportunity. I dont know if I told you before, but when I had my placements with the HVs, they had some great nursery nurses who appeared to have wonderful jobs.
