I know this isn't very helpful but it seems so backwards and old fashioned. Why on earth would you want to be trained as a nanny now when there are so many doors opened.

Milliecope-


I did get my place and I am SO excited! Sent back all my forms now, can't wait for September; I didn't apply anywhere else, so I was so amazed and grateful to get my place.

?Do you mean because so many doors are open in child are today? Norland, for me, at least is the best place to train if you want a job in childcare as the qualification is so versatile and equips you for work in a range of childcare settings. Yes, it does work towards the Norland Diploma, which is geared towards working as a nanny, but the focus is now really on the Early Years Development and Learning degree, which opens so many doors. So, while the Norland name will carry me all over the world with its prestige, the degree will enable me to train further and do anything I like in childcare, without having to decide it all right now! Personally I'd like to nanny for 6/7 years and then do a PGCE

i mean there are so many doors open now to women other than become a nanny. i dont understand why someone would choose to become one when its so restrictive and poorly paid.

But is one of the doors not childcare? To specialise in nannying maybe would be quite restrictive, but with Norland training it's just one of many options open to you. Also, Norland nannies are world renowned as the creme de la creme of nannying and have starting salaries of around £25000 and can earn up to around £100000 with experience, I hear.

We live in houses together in Bath because there are no halls. If you live close enough, then of course you can stay at home and commute, but I think sharing is best because you get a batter feel of student life and everyone will be in the same course so when you have assignments due you can all help each other!

I know, it looks fantastic! I don't really know what you mean by 'how it's like'? What would you like to know about? I haven't started yet obviously, but I know quite a lot about it by now, so can probably answer most questions.

I'm afraid we can't let people tell you specific interview questions, as that would give you an unfair advantage

Good luck for your interview though!
