    Hi guys.

    I wont waffle on for too long, but basically i cannot study through any of my local colleges due to working full time and i'm not eligiable for any financial help what so ever and quite simply do not have £850 ( to be payed in full ) to study through the college for what they can offer me.

    I really have no other option - i really have spent weeks researching, phoning every tom dick and harry im referred to for more advise and help..
    so im left with home-study.


    Im so concerned about this, because how am i supposed to know if im buying through a reliable company? and why on earth do no online companys offer childcare quals in NVQ form? does anyone know? i can only gain 'awards' to the level of which i chose.


    This is the most resonably priced course i have found.
    CHILD CARE LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT COURSE - Child Care Courses - child care course | child development course | diploma in child care | child care qualification | child care diploma | child development diploma | child development diploma.#

    what do you think? I really need some advise.

    I studied through the The Open University and it was amazing. I was eligable for a grant and I got the most fantastic support and learnt so much!

    One thing I will say is make sure you earn a nationally recognised qualification. Some home learning courses give you a certificate at the end that is worthless as they arent nationally recognised so please please do your research!!

    Good luck! x

    I studied 5 years ago and back then it was based on income and benefits (tax credits etc etc)

    The OU do courses such as Childhood & Youth Studies, early years learning etc. If you go to their website and to the Childhood & Youth studies section they have a list of their courses and I think their is a link where you can see if you would be eligable for a grant.

    Do the National Extension College do the course you want?
    They have a good reputation, and are a not for profit organisation also.

    I'm doing an A level with them, if I was doing anything about doing it I would tell you how they are! my tutor seems nice though.
