Assessment and delivery method – You will be assessed via distance learning through an online portfolio with one workplace observation. There will be an assessor assigned to you who will set you work, asking you to provide evidence of your work based knowledge and experience.  The units you will follow ask you to explain your own working practices and standards you follow. This will allow you to recognise the process’ you carry out, ways of working/ best practice and why you have to follow certain standards. This can help you develop your understanding of the industry and your own skills.

We can also include witness testimonies from colleagues, recognition of prior learning and questioning. In addition you will have access to email, telephone or Skype support with your assessor throughout your programme.

Entry Requirements – This course is open to candidates of 16 years and over, and there are no barriers on the grounds of sex, race, creed or academic attainment in learning.  You need to be working in childcare to be able to provide sufficient evidence to complete your chosen units. You can be in paid or voluntary roles and working different patterns or hours. A work based observation is required. As there are many optional units that can be chosen to help make the course personal to your role and setting experience helps you chose the ones relevant to yourself.
