Our certificated level three programme serves as the basic training for all prospective childminders, childminding assistants, au pairs and professional nannies. This is a cutting edge face-to-face practical learning course.
On successful completion of this course, you will receive a Certificate in Basic Compulsory Homebased Childcare Training which is the qualification required at Ofsted Registration.
The course is run over a three/four week period based around three core group learning days (see course content below). To support you in achieving your certificate we also offer;
Neither of these sessions is compulsory, however we would highly recommend you take advantage of them.
So you should expect your attendance to include:
Timings for the course are 08:45 (for a prompt start at 9:00) until 16:30. You will also be required to do study at home. N.B. Please note, we recommend you attended the pre-registration briefing for becoming a childminder before you book this course.
To support learners post course we invite you to attend our network support meetings and subscribe to our STEEP Childminder Annual Membership. Local Authority childminding support is also available to Childminders resident in Lewisham.
We understand some people will find it easier to pay for the course over a period of time rather than in one big chunk. We therefore have two different ways of paying for the course:
You will be required to pay all three instalments before the course finishes in order to receive your certificate of completion which you will need for your Ofsted registration visit.
If you book the following three courses as a bundle, you will receive a £15 refund of your ‘Becoming a Childminder briefing’ course fee.
NB. This £15.00 STEEP briefing fee can only be refunded once.
This offer is available when paying upfront or by instalments
