Early Learning and Childcare
Giving children the building blocks to get off to a good start in life is vital, and at Glasgow Clyde College, our courses are designed to give you an excellent foundation in Early Education and Childcare.
Jobs in Early Education and Childcare
If you're looking to develop the next generation, a career in Early Education and Childcare could be for you. Studying in this area can prepare you to work in a variety of establishments, such as local authority nurseries, education partnership institutions and private childcare settings.
To enhance your studies, you may also consider pursuing opportunities independently, such as working at local youth clubs, summer play schemes and private tutoring, all of which will gain you practical experience.
Some of our courses also allow our students to become eligible to register with the Scottish Social Services Council as Child Care Practitioners or Early Years Workforce.
Further Study Opportunities
As well as progressing to a range of early education courses at Glasgow Clyde College, students can progress to degree courses such as BA Childhood Practice at the University of Strathclyde or BA Primary Education at Stirling University.
