Norland College is looking for families to send their student nannies on trainee placements.
Norland College in Bath is renowned the world over for producing top quality nannies and ready-to-work staff for private households. Their graduates receive the education and qualifications needed to set them off on their childcare careers – ready to help out families across the country.
But before they get to take on the world’s most prestigious nanny jobs, Norland is looking for local families to send their students for placements.
After all, theoretical training can only get you so far. Real world experience is a fundamental ingredient that must be added to the mix, regardless of one’s chosen career.
Norland took in a record number of students during this academic year and now requires more families with whom to place its student nannies. Speaking to the Bath Chronicle, the college said:
“We’ll be sending our students out to family homes for six-week blocks from January 2018 so that students can gain experience and pick up valuable skills based on the theory they’ve learnt.”
Norland has said that it would rather place nannies within local families as household staff are a useful service for the community.
For families that would like to welcome one of Norland’s finest into their homes, they must have two or more children under the age of three, and at least one of those children would need to be at home in the Bath area between Mondays and Thursdays.
The families involved would also be required to complete timesheets and fill in appraisals, helping Norland to keep track of their students’ progress.
For families that qualify and that would like to give the nannies of the future the start they need, contact Norland by email at Jo.Brimble@norland.ac.uk, providing your details and children’s ages.
