“I’m currently studying my diploma of early education and care through distance and have never felt like I was alone. My trainer is always checking in on me and been a great support and comes out to visit me at placement. I’m so glad I’m studying through Selmar and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to study and work with children.”
