Unconditional Places to Full-Time Applicants

Due to the uncertainty around how long the Covid-19 outbreak will last, it has been agreed for the immediate future that we will be offering unconditional places to full-time (not University Level) applicants who apply to SGS College.

Once you apply for your course, you will receive a communication offering you a place.

You just need to accept the offer, if you wish to.

We will then be in touch to discuss the offer once the Covid-19 risk reduces.



This qualification encourages an understanding of the knowledge and the skills needed to care for young children. The course will include: • Healthy living • Human growth and development • Practical health and safety when working with young children • Understanding learning and development through play • Technology activities for young children • Craft activities for young children • Healthy eating for families • Finding out about Forest Schools • Preparing for your next steps • Children’s play and leisure activities in the community • Listening and talking with young children • Growth and development of young children • Science activities for young children

What do I need to join?

You will have 2 GCSEs at grade 2 or above in English and Maths, an acceptable DBS clearance and a good academic reference.

Maths & English

All learners will study Maths and English functional skills alongside their vocational programme. Learners with a grade 3 (D) in Maths and English will be enrolled on the GCSE programme alongside their vocational course.

Work Experience

You will complete 1 block week per term in a nursery setting.

What can I do next?

You can progress onto the Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner if you have either Maths or English GCSE grade 4 and grade 3, or L1 functional skills in the other.
