Qualification Context 

This course is suitable for anyone looking for an introduction to the childcare sector. The course is aimed at students looking to enter this field at foundation stage, encouraging an understanding of the knowledge and skills needed to care for young children. It would also provide the perfect stepping stone for further studies. 

Student Profile 

This programme 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, with a number of progression routes to higher level child care and teaching assistant qualifications. 

Objectives 

The qualification is designed to introduce learners to the knowledge and understanding required to care for children under six years old. It is equally suitable for those who are working towards a career in childcare and those who wish to apply the knowledge more widely in a domestic context.

Study Method
