  • In order to aid holistic delivery and assessment, we have structured the units around the following three themes:

    Theme 1: Health and well-being

    Theme 2: Legislation, frameworks and professional practice

    Theme 3: Play, development and learning for school readiness

During placement, learners will need support from a professional within the real work environment.

To aid assessors with discretionary decisions concerning individual experience in real work environments within the age ranging from 0-5 years: direct observations must continue to be used to assess competence with the age range the learner is working with but can be complemented with expert witness testimonies, reflective accounts including prior knowledge and professional discussions to assess knowledge, skills and competence outside of this age range.

  • Pass in all units
    All units in this qualification are mandatory. Units will be internally assessed. We have created innovative non-mandatory tasks for all units, with the exception of Unit 3.15 (see Longitudinal Study below). These can be found in the Learner Handbook and Tutor Guidance documents on our secure site.
  • Longitudinal Study (Unit 3.15)

This will be a mandatory task set by us. It will be internally assessed. Detailed guidance can be found in the Tutor Guidance on our secure site.
