We’ve launched our new childcare careers website.
Childhood experiences last a lifetime and we need a skilled, confident workforce to make sure all children have the best start.
Our new website shows how you can build a career in day care of children, which includes early learning and childcare (ELC), out of school care, childminding and other services where children are cared for during the day.
Our new easy to use website explains:
- how the recent increase of funded ELC entitlement has created 11,000 more job opportunities between now and 2020
- the diversity of career paths, shown through the career stories of current childcare professionals
- the different ways to gain experience and qualifications
- how to access learning resources and training providers.
Working with children is fun, interesting and an opportunity to make a significant difference. If you’re interested in this career we hope the website will help you take your first steps.
