Child Care CACHE Level 3 Extended at Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth

Course description

Why study Child Care?
The Child Care courses are relevant to students wishing to work with children and young people between the ages of 0-16 years in caring, educational and developmental settings e.g. schools, hospitals, creches and the care sector.

Course content

In order to complete both courses, students need to exhibit good study and communication skills as well as show an interest in working with children. Guest speakers are frequently used to explain the different schemes available in the field of Child Care. A placement for two days a week, in a variety of child care settings, is required in both courses in order to experience a range of childrens’ ages and abilities. A CRB check will have to be conducted.

Students are unable to study other subjects along with Child Care as it is a full time course.

Entry requirements

Entry to the course is dependent on Summer 2016 GCSE results.


The course is assessed at 3 different levels, Level 2, Level 3 and extended Level 3.
