Technical Level 2 Certificate in working with children in Early Years and Primary settings

This qualification covers a range of key subject areas that provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to care for and educate children aged between 0 and 11 years & 11 months old. It has been designed to support you to progress onto a Level 3 qualification across a number of sectors, including Early Years, Supporting Teaching and Learning and Children and Young people.
To gain this qualification you must achieve a minimum of a pass grade in each of the mandatory units, complete a professional skills record and achieve a short answer examination.

Ideally at least 4 GCSEs at grade 9-4 or grade A*-D or a Level 1 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.
