The nanny job marketplace is highly competitive and hence, having professional qualifications can help set your CV or resume apart from others who may be applying for the same positions. Increasing your knowledge base in childcare also shows potential employers that you are serious about your chosen career, something highly regarded by parents who are looking for a carer who they can entrust their children with. Additionally, continuous development and nanny training raises the standards of the profession and your profile as a nanny.
2. I already have experience with children, why can I gain by enrolling in an official course?
Even if you are already working as a nanny, it is never too late to gain a professional nanny qualification, which will raise your profile. During your training, you will have the opportunity to further your knowledge base in domestic childcare. The International Nanny Academy courses introduce you to key common skills, concepts and methodologies that you can implement into your daily routine at work, further benefiting the children you care for.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an internationally recognized qualification that offers skills-based, practical learning to professionals who want to enhance their careers. CPD training enables learners to be conscious and proactive in their personal career development by allowing them the opportunity to keep up-to-date with current data, information, and trends in their chosen fields.

The course includes common nanny skills, provides insightful information about the profession as a nanny and discusses learning tools to prepare for the job. The Level 2 International Nanny Diploma further develops students' academic understanding of domestic childcare and dives into specific areas of interest, such as maternity nursing, working with 'tweenagers' and sleep coaching. This course progresses from the Level 1 Certificate and provides deeper knowledge for age specific developmental aspects, broadening your career opportunities and allowing you to specialise in specific stages. The Level 3 Advanced Diploma course focuses on the more challenging aspects of domestic childcare that nannies will often experience such as, working with children who have special needs, or those who may be going through emotionally difficult situations. The Level 3 Advanced Diploma also explores positive discipline practices and discusses various theories of child development. This course allows you to develop critical skills and generate your own tools for a successful career as a professional nanny.
