What we can offer LSCS students

Maternity Nurses, Night Nannies, Day Nannies and Sleep Consultants offer invaluable support and assistance to families with young babies, toddlers and children.  Due to the specialist nature of this kind of work, parents are naturally very particular about who they will consider for these roles.  Experience and qualifications rank highly, as do impeccable references.  The London School of Childcare Studies (formerly known as HATA) Work Experience Programme helps with this by organising placements for LSCS students in the above roles, providing you with a valuable foot in the door for your chosen career path.


Work experience placements are designed to help you to showcase your confidence, maturity and natural ability to handle both the needs of the baby, toddler and/or children, as well as the family that you are working with, including how you tailor your support to cater for a range of individual parenting styles.  We will provide you with a list of all the core skills you should be demonstrating as part of your work experience placement.


Some positions are paid, and some are unpaid.  As LSCS is not an employment agency, you will be required to negotiate your terms directly with your employer.  However, we can provide advice and support throughout the process to ensure that you reach an agreement that works for both you and the family (see also the work experience page for parents).  Current vacancies are listed on the Job Board (to note that this page is continuously updated).

    "After taking the Common Core Skills course I also decided to take a maternity course after my very positive experience with HATA. All the trainers were so professional and had lots of experience in their fields. It really gave me a newfound confidence in my skills, especially after my boss went on to have a second baby."
