Children and Young People's Workforce Level 2 Apprenticeship at CSM Training

Course description

There are approximately 2.7 million people working with children and young people in England. As defined in Building Brighter Futures: next steps for the Children's Workforce in April 2008, this includes volunteers and people who work with children and young people all the time, or who do so as part of jobs which also involve working with adults. 

Course content

This qualification is intended to guide and assess development of knowledge and skills relating to the children and young people's workforce and will provide progression to the early learning and childcare, social care and learning development and support services workforces. The qualification confirms competence under supervision in these areas where appropriate and serves as a progression pathway to the required qualification at level 3 or above for registration and regulatory requirements in the sector.

  • Application of Number – Level 1
  • Communication – Level 1
  • Information and Communications Technology – Level 1
  • Level 2 Award in Employment Responsibilities and Rights in Health, Social Care, Children and Young People's Settings.
  • Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS)

Future opportunities

This apprenticeship is intended to provide learners with a good starting point within the sector, working under supervision (e.g. pre-school assistant, nursery assistant), however it is expected that learners will progress either onto the Advanced Apprenticeship or onto the L3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce as a stand-alone qualification. This will ensure that, as practitioners, they meet the appropriate level of competency, as determined by registration and regulatory requirements. Progression to L3 or Advanced Apprenticeship will also enable them to move to higher levels of work or enable them to work unsupervised, e.g. nursery supervisor, childminder, foster carer.
