NCT is looking for over one hundred women from across the UK to study on its Foundation Degree and support parents in their local communities.

The UK’s largest charity for parents seeks around 120 students to qualify and become ante-natal teachers, breastfeeding counsellors, postnatal practitioners and doulas.

Clea Harmer, Head of NCT College, says: “We’re trying to make this qualification accessible to students wherever they live as we need practitioners from all corners of the UK. Being an NCT practitioner is a great way to work with new mums and dads on their journey through early parenthood and it can be an extremely rewarding job.”

NCT’s Foundation Degree, accredited by the University of Worcester, is delivered flexibly through nationwide tutorials and study days, online and self-directed learning.

Applicants can study either full-time or part-time to suit family and other commitments. NCT offers a range of financial support packages and offers many bursaries to reduce the cost of training, some of which reduce fees by up to 70%.
