This course is a continuation of the Level 1 Caring for Children and aims to continue the development of childcare knowledge. This course is ideal for those considering a career in childcare or those who wish to develop their knowledge of children such as new mums.

  • Respecting and valuing children
  • Supporting children’s development
  • Support children’s positive behaviour
  • Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people
  • Use food and nutrition information to plan a healthy diet

WHAT WILL I NEED?

You will complete a written assessment and interview to ensure the suitability of the course.

It is desirable for you to have an English qualification either GCSE grade 3 and above or Functional Skills Entry 3 to meet the written demands of the course.
