Level 1 Certificate in Skills for Childcare

This programme will provide you with a broad introduction to the childcare sector, equipping you with underpinning knowledge and skills specific to the sector alongside a range of transferable employability skills. This course is designed to support progression to further learning and ultimately employment in childcare or other related sectors.

Units you may study include:
Physical development of young children
Healthy eating for families
Communication within a childcare setting
Preparing for work placement, there is no mandatory work placement, however work experience will be part of the course
Preparing for an interview

Employability skills

Ideally at least 4 GCSEs or an Entry Level 3 qualification, but this is subject to discussion at your interview. If you haven’t already achieved a GCSE grade 5 or grade C in English or Maths, then you will study either GCSE or Functional Skills English or Maths alongside your other qualifications. Acceptance to the programme will be subject to a DBS check.

Students may have the opportunity to study additional subjects and participate in sporting, social or enterprising activities. Examples of the various activities will be made available to you by your tutors; opportunities are varied and change each year.

We plan to offer work experience, employer talks, employer visits and other employer involvement in all our programmes.
