Have your say

A COURSE for people to gain a diploma to work with children and young people will start in Barnsley in February.

The course, which will last for 48 weeks, will be held at The Core in County Way, Barnsley, on Tuesday from 8am until 1pm.

Starting on February 19, the course will run until July 2014.

Students will attend once a week and also be expected to carry out seven hours each week of a placement in an early years setting.

A spokesman for Barnsley Council said: “The cost of the course is £702 unless learners are in receipt of a means tested benefit or eligible for funding aid.”

There is also the possibility that a similar course could run as an evening class.
