CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE?S WORKFORCE LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE
 
CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE?S WORKFORCE LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE
 
£300.00
 

COURSE CODE 713


 

 Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (TQUK) 

 

Ofqual Qual No: 601/3510/4 

Qualification Context 

Anyone working or planning to work in a range of child care occupations needs to obtain the relevant qualification approved by Ofqual, the qualifications regulator. To work in a supervised capacity requires a level 2 competence qualification for which this course is purpose designed. To work in an unsupervised capacity people will, from 1st September 2014 require a level 3 Early Years Educator qualification. This is a significant undertaking as the course is conducted over 2 years, requires placements of over 400 hours in multiple childcare settings and age groups resulting in substantial portfolios of practical skills evidence. Before undertaking a level 3 course, the level 2 programme provides an ideal introduction to working in child care occupations and an essential platform to the lengthier and more demanding level 3 qualification. 

Student Profile 

This programme is designed for people who seek to work in the child care sector. Anyone wishing to embark on a career in child care will benefit and it provides a start point to the formal qualifications required to work in the 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. 

People intending to gain the level 3 Early Years Educator qualification will find this an ideal first step which introduces the format of knowledge and competence based qualifications before embarking on the longer and more demanding level 3 course over 2 years. 

This qualification is to guide and assess development of knowledge and skills relating to the children & young people’s workforce and will provide progression to the Early Years Educator level 3 qualification. This qualification confirms competence under supervision in these areas where appropriate and serves as a progression pathway to the required qualification at Level 3 and above (for all new practitioners) for registration and regulatory requirements in the sector. 

Objectives 

The aims of this course are to allow students to develop: 

an understanding of the role of learning and development in child care settings, and the legislative context within which child carers operate

an understanding of the personal and interpersonal skills required of a child carer at this level.

an understanding of early education framework

Course Duration
Students may register at any time and have a full year to complete their studies. The course will take around 300 hours of study to complete.

Study Method
The course is designed for study by distance learning. Students receive course manual, assignments and studyguide plus tutor support by mail and email. You can start at any time and plan your studies over a period of up to one year from the time of enrolment. 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 child care, who will oversee your practical evidence gathering. 

Assessment 

Each unit is followed by a written assignment (comprising a portfolio of evidence of learning) , which is submitted and then marked by your tutor. 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. 

Course Accreditation 

This course provides successful students with a qualification from TQUK, regulated by Ofqual. TQUK is an Awarding Organisation recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) in England and by the Welsh Government. 

This is a competence based qualification suitable for all people seeking a first qualification in child care, providing confirmation of competence to work in a supervised capacity. 

Please Note: a work placement of at least 50 hours is required to complete this qualification.
