What will I learn?

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

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

Each of the units requires students to provide relevant coursework to make up there 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 workplace experience. The practical aspects will need to be overseen by a nominated workplace supervisor from a placement setting.
