Learning providers

With its resources, free training and discounts, student membership can support your staff, help your students and stretch your budget further

Students studying early years represent the next generation of childcare professionals and we want to support your college to prepare them for their demanding and rewarding career working with young children.

Individual membership, which provides access to all our fantastic resources, is only £30 a year, the equivalent of £2.50 a month. Students can purchase their own membership directly through our website, or you can speak to one of the team to discuss signing up entire cohorts at one time.

By joining PACEY, your organisation and students will become part of a professional body representing more than 30,000 childcare professionals in England and Wales.

Don't just take our word for it. Here's what Ian Everitt, Programme Area Manager: Childcare, Leicester College had to say:

PACEY is one of the most important organisations in Early Years today. Both for experienced practitioners and students, the resources and support available are hard to match anywhere else. The package offered is of high quality and being devised by practitioners, the PACEY member can access resources, advice and CPD which is robust and reliable.  My friends and colleagues in the profession are all PACEY members. At Leicester College we also promote the value of student membership and the benefits this brings.
