Balance of study and working in childcare

Post by trish73 » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:47 pm

I'm studying my diploma of children services which will take 2 years with YMCA, my face to face is 5 hrs a fortnight and my study time is meant to be 5 hrs a week, but I take longer.
So if my total study hours is 10 hrs a week, how many work hours maximum would be required per week without getting burnt out?
Kind regards
Trish

Maybe you can do 10 hrs a week... you need to do 240 hrs altogether so it's up to you how you want to split it up...

Yes, it is hard to work and study... what works for some may not work with others so you need to work out how to balance it all...
