I have searched the forum & couldn't find a post but apologies if this has been discussed before.
I have previously volunteered in a primary school through the charity VRH and have long wanted to move into the childcare sector. I work in retail & full-time study is not an option but I have found two colleges local to me providing part-time study. Each offers a different course; which is the most well regarded & more relevant to progressing/getting a job: 'Childhood studies CACHE level 2' or 'Children & young people's workforce level 2 certificate C & G'?
Also, I have been e-mailing local nurseries to enquire about volunteering so that I can gain my placement hours for the course but as yet have not had a response. I didn't want to telephone as I presume staff are too busy for phonecalls of this nature, how best can I approach them?
