Children's Play, Learning & Development BTEC Level 3 Block B at Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre
This two year BTEC course looks at the broad basis of study of
the early year’s sector which suits learners who are interested in
working with children. All students will be required to carry out a
minimum of 50 hours work placement in at least one setting over
the two years. This placement has to be a setting with children
from birth to eight years. This course is equivalent to one A-level.
The structure of this course requires you to complete one written
exam, one practical based exam and two pieces of coursework. You
will study the development of children’s communication, literacy
and numeracy skills. You will also learn about the benefits of play,
the influence of theories and approaches to play. Finally, you will
look at the physical care and health needs of children, develop skills
to support their needs and learn how to recognise ill health.
5 GCSEs grades at 9 to 4 or equivalent.
This qualification is designed to support progression to higher education. It is also relevant to those who choose to progress directly to employment, through an Early Years Educator Apprenticeship.
