We are delighted to announce that we have a new bursary available for students who reside in Cardiff or Swansea.

Would you like to study to be an NCT practitioner running antenatal courses, providing postnatal services or breastfeeding counselling? We are offering bursaries for students in Swansea and Cardiff a pathway which allows you to study full or part-time on the foundation degree programme.

Foundation degree programme

Following completion of the Level 4 modules you can choose the following Level 5 modules from our foundation degree programme:

  1. 60 credits at level 5 where you attain an NCT License-to-Practise and qualify as either an antenatal teacher, postnatal practitioner or a breastfeeding counsellor, or
  2. 120 credits at level 5 where you attain an NCT License-to-Practise in two of the main specialisms, and in addition you will receive a foundation degree.

Where will the course be held?

We have a core tutorial groups based in Malmesbury near Chippenham, Worcester and Birmingham, and module groups based in Bristol and Worcester .

The part-time option will equate to around 15 hours study a week consisting of tutorials/study days/assessment days and self-directed study. In addition you are also required to participate in work based learning. It would then take 4 years to achieve a foundation degree.

The full-time option will equate to around 30 hours study a week consisting of tutorials/study days/assessment days and self-directed study. In addition you are also required to participate in work based learning. It would then take 2 years to achieve a foundation degree.
