Next available course:
This qualification has been developed for people wanting to work in the children and young people’s workforce. It is ideal for people who are just starting out in a career within childcare and do not feel ready to take a full Level 3 qualification.
The qualification will help students build the knowledge and skills needed when working under supervision with children and young people from birth to 19 years of age.
It covers a diverse range of job roles and occupational areas in children’s settings, including early years and social care. This qualification enables credits and learning to be transferred from this qualification to the Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (England) providing a direct progression route.
