Program Description

Children's & Young People's Workforce (QCF) - Level 2 Course

Distance Learning Centre

The Children & Young People’s Workforce (QCF) - Level 2 Course is for students who want to work in the childcare sector. The course is suitable for anyone wishing to start a career in childcare and it provides a starting point to the formal qualifications required for working in this sector.

It provides an ideal route into a career in child care and results in a fully recognised qualification which enables students to work competently in a supervised capacity within a child care setting.

On successful completion, students will receive the Children and Young People’s Workforce level 2 Certificate Qualification with 35 credits issued.

Please Note: Because this is a competence based qualification, students will need to have a placement in a child care setting in which to gather evidence of skills and learning, and you will need to nominate a workplace supervisor qualified to level 4 or above in childcare, who will oversee your practical evidence gathering. a work placement of at least 50 hours is recommended to complete this option.

Each of the units requires students to provide relevant coursework to make up the complete portfolio. The portfolio will consist of a mixture of knowledge-based tasks requiring text-based / essay style answers, and evidence of practical skills which include witness statements, observations and discussion records based on your work experience. The practical aspects will need to be overseen by a nominated workplace supervisor from a placement setting.

On successful completion of this course, students will receive a Children & Young People’s Workforce - Level 2 Certificate Qualification by NCFE.
