This course is aimed at learners who are thinking about a career working with young children in a variety of childcare settings.
The course will prepare you to work in a supervised capacity with children and their families. Work experience forms an integral part of the course allowing you to put the skills you have learnt in the classroom into practice. Work experience will take place on alternate weeks throughout the course and you will be expected to complete two placements – birth to one year at a Day Nursery and 3 to 5 years at a school.
On successful completion of this course you may be able to progress directly to employment at a junior level or onto the Level 3 course to continue building your knowledge and skills.
