    “I enrolled on this course after the COVID19 lockdown like many other, I had  lost my job. I was looking to go back to work, and I wanted to look for something that I was good at. I know that I am good with children  .I am glad  that I did the course because I learned a lot of things about the childcare and education sector, which I didn’t know before. The course covered a lot of topics including  child development, Government regulations , safeguarding and lots more.” Gifty
