I am currently a nanny with 5.5 years experience as a nanny and 3.5 as a nursery nurse. I am thinking of leaving my job as a nanny to become a teaching assistant as I have a 4 month old son and it would allow me more time with him. Especially when he goes to school. Whilst I have a BTEC National Diploma in Childhood Studies I was looking at courses I can do to help me get a position but there are so many different courses and websites out there I don't want to waste time and money doing something that won't help. Has anyone got any advice on which websites and distance learning courses might benefit me? Thanks in advance for any help.
