Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course but we expect you to have some experience of working in an Early Years environment, or hold a relevant level 2 qualification.

You will need to have a good command of basic English, be at least 16 years of age and be working or volunteering in a relevant childcare setting.

Assessment

You will create a portfolio of evidence using learning plans, written tasks, and discussion. You will also undertake two longitudinal studies, one for a child under 36 months of age, and the other for a child over 36 months of age.

Both studies end with direct observation in the workplace. There will therefore be two workplace assessment days for this course.

Future opportunities

After successful completion of the course you can seek employment in childcare settings such as schools, nurseries, playgroups in an assistant or practitioner role.

You can also progress onto one of our higher qualifications which include:

  • Foundation Degree in Supporting Teaching & Learning
  • Foundation Degree in Early Years Education
