HNC in Childhood Practice

What is it about?
Whether you are working with children in Church, Sunday School or Messy Church, or you want to make the first steps into a career in a school or nursery, the HNC in Childhood Practice can help you understand the world of the child and develop some of the skills for working with them.

Placement options
Most students coming on to the programme are already involved in working with children and may use this context as a placement. For those students who are not already involved somewhere that could be a placement, then we will support the student in finding somewhere suitable.
