    "You can learn in your own time "

    - Gillian Ama Celestin, South Ockendon

    I wanted to study Early Years Level 4 because I wanted to start a nursery and needed to learn about the legislations and how to manage and run the early years setting. The best thing about studying with the Open Study College is that you can learn in your own time and complete the course as fast or as slow as you want. Tutor support has been helpful so far. The study material has everything so you dont need extra books, just extra research online and links to websites are provided. I am enjoying my course and would recommend it to a friend. I started my course on the 13th April 2015, there are 6 units to complete.
