Qualifications for learners aspiring to work in the childcare and education sector.

Ranging from Entry Level 3 to Level 2, our qualifications offer learners who are looking to develop the skills required for working with children and young people in an early years setting, become an early years practitioner or to simply learn more about children’s care, learning and development.

Upon completion, learners should be able to find employment within the early education sector, with skills ranging from caring for children from birth to getting children ready to transition to primary school. While it is possible to work in this industry without qualifications, most prospective employers will seek qualified staff due to the nature of the role.
