Becoming a Norland Nanny is child’s play for former student

08 October 2014

We were delighted to hear from former Childcare student Katie Ramsay about her progression on to a degree course at the prestigious Norland College in Bath.


Norland have been running courses in early years education at degree level since 1892 and are internationally recognised as one of the best in this field meaning that places for students are extremely competitive.

After completing her college course in 2013 Katie, who also won a college Achiever Award for Childcare, is now studying for a degree in Early Years Development & Learning with the Norland Diploma. She believes her time at the college helped to make the transition easier for her:

“The Childcare course at college was really good and the tutors were amazing with the support they gave whether we were going to University or straight to the workplace.“

The assignments I get from Norland are just like the ones I did at college and I have to go and find all the resources I need to do the assignment. College helped in this as we were encouraged to go out and find our own references and sources.”

Katie went on to explain that studying at Norland had been a long held ambition for her and was thankful for the support she received to make this possible:

“I wanted to go to Norland since I was in Year 11 as I knew I wanted to work with children. The college were brilliant helping me with my application. I went along to all of the UCAS application workshops which were really useful. When I found out that I got the grade I needed and was accepted I think I literally danced a jig. I was so excited!”

Sue Greenstreet, Childcare tutor at the college said:

“Our Level Three Diploma in Childcare & Education is a well respected and popular course which provides an excellent opportunity for students to gain employment with young children. The hard work Katie put in whilst at the college and during her placements has given her a really great start to her degree course.”
