About Us

Childcare Training in Yorkshire.

First Avenue Training's primary mission is to improve children's lives and wellbeing through the delivery of effective training to the professionals that look after them. Our aims are: To develop the practice, knowledge and skills of learners to support children's wellbeing and development and to become suitable childcare practitioners; and to develop the skills of learners wishing to become responsible tutors/assessors. Our objectives are that learners will: Gain the knowledge and understanding suitable to their subject area; Have an opportunity to practice skills and put into practice knowledge gained; Be offered support, advice and help to achieve their work and learning goals.

We are based in East Yorkshire but also cover West, South and North Yorkshire as well as North and North East Lincolnshire. We can also provide Distance Learning on a much wider geographic area.

Specialists in delivering Childcare and Teaching Assistant qualifications through Work Based Learning, we also provide short and long courses, workshops and training needs consultations in childcare and education. In addition, we deliver Adult Teacher Training and Assessing Qualifications. We also offer funded training for Apprenticeships.

The team consists of tutors and assessors who are highly qualified and experienced in their field.

The Company office is situated here, in the town of Goole within five minutes walk of the railway station and main bus routes and five minutes from the M62 motorway. The office is on the ground floor of the building and a ramp is available for students with any difficulties with access. Limited parking is available outside (1 hour), in local car parks (3 hours) and on-street (unlimited - but call for advice). You can get directions here. Most of our training is delivered in childcare settings and schools.

The Company aims to be flexible to meet the differing needs of students and employers (see our equal opportunities policy). Training can be organised and delivered in most settings and areas.
