City of Bristol College student, Katie, gains employment in dream job

A Childcare and Education student has been able to secure her dream job as an early years practitioner after finishing her studies at City of Bristol College.

Eighteen-year-old Katie Hilton completed her Level 3 qualification with the college this year and has already secured a full-time position at a pre-school with her own group.

Katie said the course ‘helped in a range of ways’ and allowed her to gain the relevant knowledge and experience from the course. She added: “I have gained a lot of confidence since being at the college which has allowed me to gain the confidence to apply for the job I have always wanted but wouldn’t have been able to do previously.

Katie praised her experience of City of Bristol College over the past two years with the Level 3 Childcare and Education course delivered well by her two ‘amazing’ lecturers Gemma and Rachel.

She added: “Gemma and Rachel have really enhanced my experience within the college as they have been very supportive with the course and also within my next journey.

“I would highly recommend studying with the college. It has a lot of different courses to offer ranging at different levels – which shows they are inclusive for everyone”.

Katie said she learned so much on the course and was able to develop and apply her knowledge in her new job. She explained how informative the course was and how she was supported with her assignments and controlled assessments.

Katie finished the course with an A* under her belt as well as an additional Paediatric First Aid qualification to support her in the new pre-school environment.

The two-year, full-time Childcare and Education course enables learners to work with children from birth to five years old and give them knowledge for older toddlers.

This course offers learners a great opportunity to progress into higher education and previous learners have moved on to specialise in primary school teaching, children’s nursing and to become a nanny/au pair abroad.
