    I really enjoyed the course. It was very informative, coherent and helpful. I liked the way the information was presented e.g. the presentation of good and bad interviews at the beginning of the course. There were many examples from real life that I found relevant and interesting.

    Really helpful and informative course in a friendly and relaxed environment. I will now feel much more confident when applying for jobs and when attending interviews will feel like I really know what I am talking about. The take-away book is a brilliant reference for ideas when stuck for things to do and to cook. Thank you, Angela! Lydia C

    Evaluation of module 1 ‘Understanding the Role of a Nanny’:

    This was new way to experience training, online via a video meeting with nannytraininglink owner and trainer, Margaret Cowell. Although I would have liked to have had others’ opinions as part of this training, the one-to-one experience didn’t make it any less valuable or informative. Indeed, I really appreciated being able to sit comfortably in my spare bedroom with a cup of tea to receive such clear and concise training!

    I am a relatively new nanny working for parents who are also new to employing a nanny. Six months into the role I suddenly became aware of the need to formalise my profession as a nanny in order to document my continuing professional development. Although a mother and professional childcare worker with many years previous experience working with young children, I gained huge benefit from the good practice tips and ideas for working in the nanny role, all of which I can now implement to improve on my practice.

    The module covers confidentiality, conduct and communication as well as information about data protection relevant to nannies. I left this first session feeling positively empowered as a professional and would highly recommend it to anyone considering becoming a nanny and/or looking to enhance their professional development.

    I attended the training course on Saturday 12th March. A brilliant session with Nanny Link, Sidcup. The course was very interactive, relaxed, and great fun. It’s a long time since I trained and it was good to refresh; I learnt so much. Thoroughly recommend it.

  23. Annabel on March 14, 2016 at 8:11 am

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I found it was great to refresh my memory of my previous experiences and duties involved in all aspects of Childcare. Angela was excellent and presented the course very well. I would recommend the course to others.

  24. Kathyrn on March 14, 2016 at 8:12 am

    Really enjoyed the course today. The training manual was very clear to understand and enjoyable to work through. It was nice to chat to others, exchange personal experiences of childcare, and to share ideas with others. A relaxed and friendly environment that made learning all the more enjoyable. I feel more prepared for working with children.

  25. Sadie on June 13, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    I recommended attending this course before becoming a Nanny or Childcare provider. It provides vital information on all aspects including Interview techniques, legalities on both sides, early years and how to be professional in your field. “

    Excellant powerpoint presentation on healthy eating for children aged 1 to 4 years old. Very informative, good suggestions on what to give children to eat. The details on Gross and net slary was good because I was unclear about this before. Will help me when starting a new job and corresponding with the recrutiment agencies. The group discussion on planning activities around EYFS was good.It will hep me plan activities for the children better.

    ‘I have used Select Nannies to gain my previous three jobs, and I wouldn’t
    go anywhere else! Angela is an absolute delight, I would recommend Angela to
    any Nanny who is looking for work, her agency is a cut about the rest, she
    is so supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. Angela actually
    cares about her nannies she places, she takes the time to get to know you
    and your needs.

    I have completed the Nanny Training Course with Angela also, I would
    recommend this course to any Nanny as it helps you understand your role as a
    professional, prospective parents are always very impressed when told about
    the qualification.

    Select Nannies is a fantastic agency to be a part of, its highly
    recommended!

  32. Becki on August 21, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    Really enjoyed the course and appreciated all the help I got from Margaret, really friendly and easy to talk to,She really ensured I understood but didnt patronize me at all.
    Really liked how easy and straight forward it was, nicely broken down modules, and received certificate (and little card) straight away, 100% reliable and flexible,
    Will definitely recommend them, and keep in touch for any help I may need
