Yasmin earns place to become Norland Nanny

Brock student Yasmin Lawrence

Early Years student Yasmin Lawrence has secured a place to study at Norland, the prestigious Early Years Higher Education provider whose graduates are known for providing childcare to royalty as well as the rich and famous.

Eighteen-year-old Yasmin, from King’s Somborne near Stockbridge, was accepted following an interview and will receive a bursary to help cover the costs of her three-year degree programme.

Since starting her Level 3 Extended Diploma in Children’s Play, Learning and Development at Brockenhurst College, she has built an impressive CV containing evidence of good grades and high quality work experience.

Yasmin said: “I feel as though my teachers, Victoria Hussey and Emily Lenihan, have fully prepared me to take the next step in my dream career.

“On placement I had the opportunity to build professional relationships with both staff members and the children.

“I look forward to using the skills that I have gained for my future development as a Norland Nanny.”

Norland, which is located in Bath, was established in 1892 by educational pioneer Emily Ward, and was the first educational establishment to offer any kind of childcare training.

The institution is steeped in history and tradition, with students’ uniforms giving the men and women who study there a smart and distinctive look.

Brock Early Years and Health Lecturer, Victoria Hussey, said: “We are really proud that Yasmin has earned this opportunity to study at the famous Norland College.

“She has achieved this early ambition with hard work and good grades, and we wish her the best of luck.”
