I came to The Henley College from Wallingford School. I wanted to study the course as I liked the balance between college and work experience. I wanted to have equal opportunities for practical and theory based learning. I also liked how the course was mainly work based as I benefit from learning this way the best.
Without my placement experience I wouldn't have the confidence or skills needed to work with children. I did three placements in total working with a range of children, from newborns to 7 years of age. My placement opportunities have allowed me to use what I have learnt in lessons to be put into practice. Working with different age groups and completing the different skills in the PEP has prepared me for full time work as I was able to complete the same tasks as the other Early Years Workers.
The teachers on the course were fantastic, they made sure each student knew what they were doing and they sat down with us for as long as we needed. My tutor Jacquie, ensured that each one of us knew what we were doing once we finished college and she guided us through it so we all had a plan or an idea on what to do next.
The teachers were very helpful. They were easy to approach for help and they would go through the specification so we knew what to do for each criteria. They also gave us strengths and developments so we knew how to improve.
