What our students say...

"I had been working in early years for almost 6 years and had a lot of experience; my manager at the time recommended the course and the college to me. The classes are very interactive and the modules are relevant to anyone working in the sector. The college has great facilities and great staff. The lecturers are extremely knowledgable and are always on hand to give advice and support whenever needed.                                                           This course will bring you the knowledge and skills to work with children and their families. It has really benefitted my career and has made a huge difference to how I work. I have recently opened my own early years service and without this course I would have never had the confidence or knowledge to do so. I have been inspired to continue to further my education and to see the importance of continued professional development so I can continue to grow and learn throughout my career. I can see myself in education for the rest of my career thanks to the inspiring lecturers at ITB.                                                                      I would highly recommend this course and college to anyone who intends to work in the early years sector."                                           Rita Mitchell
