The Childcare Strategy team are hosting the next Men in Childcare course at North Inch Community Campus, Perth on Monday 24 August 2015 6.30 pm – 8.00 pm

Perth & Kinross Council would like to encourage more men to work in childcare so the Childcare Strategy Team is offering a number of standalone units that make up the National Progression Award in Playwork which is accredited by SQA.

This course is open to any males aged 16 years and over who are interested in working with children in a professional capacity.

Following a very successful course run during 2014/15, another course started in April 2015 and will run to the end of April 2016.

The course consists of five units:

Child Development (24 August)
Additional Support Needs
Rights of Children
Working in Childcare
Participants can book on a single unit or on the full course. The course is free, however advance booking is required.
