Whether you’re looking to work with parents in pregnancy, you’re interested in the first days and months of life or you’re keen to support parents across their First 1,000 Days, we have a role to suit you.

Once you have successfully completed Level 4 and move onto Level 5 of your Foundation Degree Birth and Beyond you can choose which role (or roles) you’d like to specialise in.

For each role you can find out more about the course and modules you need to follow to become licensed to practise, how much time you might need to commit, what experience and qualifications you need - or what the alternatives are, plus details of how to find out more or apply.

Because we want our practitioners to be as happy as our clients, under each role you will also find details of rates of pay. How much a course leader earns depends largely on how many courses and sessions they choose to lead.

If you have any questions, take a look at our FAQs or contact our friendly admissions team by using our online enquiry form, emailing admissions@nct.org.uk or calling 020 8752 2453 or 01905 543012.
