Course Description

If you are considering working with children and young people or are actively employed in an occupation or workforce setting, then this course is for you.

Anyone working or planning to work in a range of child care occupations needs to obtain the relevant qualification approved by Ofqual, the qualifications regulator. To work in a supervised capacity requires a level 2 competence qualification for which this course is purpose designed. To work in an unsupervised capacity people will, from 1st September 2014 require a level 3 Early Years Educator qualification. This is a significant undertaking as the course is conducted over 2 years, requires placements of over 400 hours in multiple childcare settings and age groups resulting in substantial portfolios of practical skills evidence. Before undertaking a level 3 course, the level 2 programme provides an ideal introduction to working in child care occupations and an essential platform to the lengthier and more demanding level 3 qualification.

The Distance Learning Children and Young People's Workforce (QCF) course is designed for people who seek to work in the child care sector. Anyone wishing to embark on a career in child care will benefit and it provides a start point to the formal qualifications required to work in the sector. It provides an ideal route into a career in child care and results in a fully recognised qualification which enables students to work competently in a supervised capacity.

This qualification is to guide and assess development of knowledge and skills relating to the children & young people’s workforce and will provide progression to the Early Years Educator level 3 qualification. This qualification confirms competence under supervision in these areas where appropriate and serves as a progression pathway to the required qualification at Level 3 and above (for all new practitioners) for registration and regulatory requirements in the sector.

Because this is a competence based NCFE Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce
QCF Qual No: 601/3510/4 qualification, students will need to have a placement in a child care setting in which to gather evidence of skills and learning, and you will need to nominate a workplace supervisor qualified to level 4 or above in child care, who will oversee your practical evidence gathering.

Please Note: a work placement of at least 50 hours is required to complete this option.

On completion of the mandatory units, you will achieve a Level 2 (NCFE Accredited) certificate , listed on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) Database allocating 35 Credits (Qualification Number:601/3510/4)
