Childcare Extended Diploma Level 3 at Jarvis Training Management Limited

Course description

This course is specifically designed to develop the knowledge and skills needed when working with children and young people from 0-16 years of age. 

This qualification is ideal for anyone who wants to work at a supervisory level in the childcare sector or looking to progress onto a degree in childcare.

The programme incorporates all the units from the CYPW Level 3 and in addition, there are extended units which assess, build and develop the higher level skills required to study effectively and successfully in higher education.

Entry requirements

In order to be considered, you must be at least 19 years old and hold both GCSE English and Maths at grades C or above. 

You will need to be working in a childcare setting as you will need to show competence in your practice, skills and knowledge of this area.


Each learner will be assigned an assessor who will provide guidance and training throughout your programme.

Assessment is carried out in the workplace by your assessor and during workshops which are scheduled to deliver the underpinning knowledge and understanding for the completion of compulsory assignments and tasks.

Electronic portfolios are used to collate evidence.

The extended units will be assessed by mandatory tasks set by the awarding body, CACHE, plus three written assignments. 

These are externally marked and graded by CACHE.

UCAS points are awarded for this qualification and range from 80 (grade E) to 420 (grade A*).
