Unlimited career opportunities and lifelong support await you
As a fully qualified Norland graduate, or Norlander, you’ll have your very own dedicated in-house recruitment agency. The Norland Agency is as old as Norland itself, set up in parallel with the Norland Institute to place the first cohort of nannies into employment.
There are not many professions that can offer guaranteed employment opportunities, but at Norland demand from families for qualified Norland graduates outstripped supply from day one and continues to do so today. Norland Agency works exclusively with Norlanders to place them in positions all over the world, working as nannies and maternity practitioners. Once qualified, Norlanders have exclusive access to a list of clients who specifically want to employ a Norland Nanny through the Norland Agency.
The lifelong support you’ll receive as a Norlander is also something which has continued since the early days of Norland. You’ll have the opportunity to pursue Norland’s maternity practitioner course as a fully-qualified Norlander and have exclusive access to an active Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training programme to ensure your knowledge and skills are kept up to date. Today’s Norlanders turn to the private Norlander Facebook group for peer support, telephone or email the Norland Agency and Alumni team or simply drop in. Norlanders can always be sure of support and friendship, whenever and wherever they are in the world.
“I would come back and do it all again, because it was amazing!”
Norlander Alice gives a presentation at a Norland open day about her experience at Norland and her incredible career so far in the four years since she qualified.
