During this course you will study two units.  Both will be assessed with  coursework and there will be an external exam at the end of the two years which will test knowledge from both units. 

Unit 1:

An introduction to working with children ages 0-5 years




  • The variety of settings that are available to children;
  • The expectations of placements including appropriate dress and behaviour;
  • The responsibilities and limits of the role of a childcare worker;
  • How to treat children with fairness and equality;
  • The different learning styles that people use.

Unit 2:

Development and well-being 0-5 years


  • The pattern of development of children from birth to 5 years;
  • How practitioners use observation and other assessment techniques to record data about developmental progress;
  • The factors that contribute to and can hinder development;
  • How care routines support the independence, health, ,safety and well-being of children
  • The transitions experienced by children and how to support them.

To take this course you must have an interest in working with and learning about children’s care and development.

As this course is about working with children we require that work experience placements are in a childcare setting. This is so that your knowledge and understanding can be supported in a practical way.
