Supported in all steps to be Ofsted registered

I have been supported through all my application steps to be registered with Ofsted! I always received a quick reply from the director herself or even a phone call. It was good to know I can always consult with Babyem for anything regarding my training or distance courses. I will highly recommend them as a company!

My confidence has grown enormously!

I have been in childcare for over 16 years. I recently updated my maternity and breastfeeding skills through their maternity training course. Within two weeks I was chosen to work with twins aged 3 weeks through their work experience scheme which was great. Through further daily work experience with Babyem families, my confidence and knowledge has grown enormously after 4 years! Thank you Babyem!

Highly recommended by friends

I recently attended the Babyem maternity nurse training and paediatric first aid course. Both courses were highly recommended by friends and did not disappoint. Both tutors were funny and knowledgeable and used varied activities. Just about to start my first first maternity placement and I can’t wait. Good job Babyem!

Very good course! Even if you have been working in child care for a long time the common core skills and knowledge training is a must do course. These are the things that every professional should know.
