This Diploma is suitable for childcare practitioners who are employed (not working in a volunteer role) in a day nursery, pre-school or working as a self-employed childminder who undertake tasks associated with the industry that hold some level of responsibility. Consequently, practitioners must be working in a supervisory role or be able to work unsupervised with a minimum of two children. Childminders cannot include their own children in this minimum requirement. Childcare practitioners working within a primary school should preferably be based in a nursery or reception class in order to meet the criteria within some of the units. Such practitioners may wish to consider the Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools as an alternative qualification as this may be more appropriate to their job role.
There are no formal entry requirements for candidates undertaking this Diploma. However, candidates must have good verbal communication skills, have the potential and opportunity to gain evidence for the qualification in the work place and be working with children at supervisory level for at least 15 hours per week
A variety of assessment methods are used, including direct observation; asking questions; examination of work products; witness testimonies; recognition of prior learning/experience; reflective accounts; simulation; professional discussion; assignments or written tests
Fees listed are for those aged 19 years and over only. Fees are subject to change, concessions may apply. Please note that where stated, fees are for the first year of a course only. Please contact us for information and advice.
