Caring for Children, Certificate

You will gain a broad understanding of the childcare sector and start to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need. You will also be offered a work placement to experience real work practice and demonstrate your skills.

You will cover a number of units, which will include planning a safe childcare environment, healthy eating, creative activities, physical play and supporting children’s learning through everyday experiences. You will also develop your English and maths skills to the level that most employers look for. This programme will give you practical skills, confidence and employability within the early years sector.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through written coursework, presentations and practical experiences.

What could I do after this course?

This study programme is a steppingstone to further education at Level 2, a traineeship or an apprenticeship. However, the personal, social and work skills that you will gain will support your employment opportunities in all areas.


Entry Requirements

A genuine interest in working with people is an absolute necessity. You will also need five GCSEs at grade 3-1 with at least two at grade 3, or the successful completion of a pre-vocational programme. On enrolment you will be required to undertake a DBS check, which the College will pay for.
