Summary

The aim of this qualification is to prepare learners to work with children between birth and the age of five years, with knowledge of children up to seven years. The units you will study include: • Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people • Young children’s development • Using food and nutrition information to plan a healthy diet • Craft activities with young children • Importance of play for early learning

What do I need to join?

You will need 4 GCSEs at grade 3 (D) or above, including English and Maths. You will need a clear DBS certificate, a good academic reference and a reference from an early years setting.

How will I know how I am doing?

A range of methods will be used for your assessments; these could include written assessment, discussions, individual, pair and group work, presentations and leaflets.

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) will be enrolled on a GCSE.

Employability

We will be delivering a variety of tasks and projects to promote your employability, including Makaton, paediatric first aid, Forest Schools and guest speakers.

Work Experience

You will attend a placement in a childcare setting one day a week.

A good outcome on this course, combined with an appropriate level of English and maths, will enable you to progress onto a Level 3 course within the department. Alternatively, you may wish to continue training whilst working via an apprenticeship or other work-based learning programme.

What are my career options?

This is a Level 2 programme to support you in preparing for your next step, either studying Level 3 to gain your Early Years Educator status, or moving into employment with training.
