CDP SHORT COURSES & QUALIFICATIONS
It’s that time of year again when young people who have worked so hard over the past two years to get to this gateway to their future, experience either elation or total deflation. No matter how many times people say ‘it really doesn’t matter…you can still succeed in life’ it does not hold back the wave of disappointment that washes over you. And let’s face it, some people just cannot cope with exams – the pressure of putting all your learning into a climax of two intense hours can be completely overwhelming and can result in a ‘blank brain’ effect. If this happens to you, and exams are not your thing, then have you considered other options? It’s equally important to add that the university route does not suit everyone.
We’re continuing the celebrations of Side By Side Training 10th year by offering Level 4 qualifications at a reduced price during the month of June 2019.
Each of the following courses will be just £750 (normally £1000) saving you £250!!!
It seems like only yesterday that, after much encouragement from colleagues in FE and Early Years, Side by Side was launched by Joy Scadden and Helen Horsley. Joy and Helen had already ‘clocked up’ many years’ experience in these sectors and they were looking for a new challenge, with a strong focus on improving the quality […]

I really enjoyed the course and would like to continue my qualifications.
Really enjoyed the whole learning experience.
Thank to everyone at SBS for understanding of my needs
So happy with SBS – great support for 2 ½ years and made friends for life – thank you!
Claire was great teacher and very helpful – gave me confidence to continue.
SBS is a great place for learning
This was a thoroughly enjoyable course and it is a great stepping stone onto the Level 3 qualification, especially for those with little or no experience of child care.
Thank you to everyone involved – I gained so much confidence.
A big thank you to Janet and Julie
Having worked for some time as a voluntary teaching assistant, I decided in the Autumn of 2009 to undertake a NVQ level 3 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development. The course turned out to be a double qualification with the NVQ running in parallel to a Technical Certificate. I found the course extremely interesting and informative. Both Joy, my Tutor at Side by Side Training and Julie, my NVQ Assessor at Side by Side Training were helpful and encouraging. At the end of the Summer Term of 2010 I passed my NVQ 3 and achieved a ‘Grade A’ pass for my Technical Certificate.
Having undertaken no formal education for over 20 years, this achievement boosted both my self esteem and employment potential. I am now completing my first year of employment as a Learning Assistant at a local school, where I have achieved Cover Supervisor status and regularly supervise classes in the absence of the Class Teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Joy and the team at Side by Side Training and would recommend them to anyone considering undertaking a qualification to support their career in Early Years Childcare Practice.
We took on a 17 year old apprentice from Side by Side Training in September 2010. We have been delighted with her and her level of commitment to our group. She has become a valued member of staff and shows great potential, so much so that now she has finished her course we have asked that she remain as a permanent member of staff.
Thank you Joy for helping us to access this student and we look forward to working together in the future.
