employer and getting a real wage.
}} Learn – you’ll be studying and developing
the skills you need for work and to gain a
qualification.
}} Develop – you’ll be getting valuable workplace
experience and the confidence to make a
difference to your work and job.
}} Succeed – your apprenticeship will give you the
knowledge and abilities you need to develop
your career and progress at work.

I’m 26 years old and I am
currently studying level 3
in childcare.
Working in childcare has
been my dream career for as
long as I can remember, and
now I work in a wonderful
private nursery in South
Woodford, where I have been for one year.
My manager put me in touch with Redbridge
Institute after hearing some very promising
information about the college.
Course enquiries 020 8550 2398 Since starting the childcare course I have met
some lovely students and we have created a great
support network. My tutors are amazing and
provide you with detailed relevant information as
well as having a joke in between, after all learning
should be fun!
I am really enjoying my course so far, with the
relaxed atmosphere I feel I gain a lot more from
my time here!

Arts, crafts, music and photography
We offer a variety of courses in art, crafts,
dance, music and photography. Many of these
are held in our excellent specialist rooms,
which include fully equipped jewellery, craft
and pottery studios.
Look out for the extra one day, weekend and
short courses offered throughout the year.
There may be additional costs for the use of
materials on some arts and craft courses.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced
learner, you’ll be able to extend your technical
skills and build confidence in your creative ability.
You will be taught by friendly, experienced and
talented tutors.
Learners who have attended our courses have
acquired the skills and confidence to progress
further and some now run small businesses to sell
and exhibit their work.
