Childcare Qualifications

Qualifications for learners who are passionate about working with children or in an early years setting.

Ranging from Entry Level 3 to Level 1, our childcare and early years qualifications are designed to provide learners with the confidence, skills and knowledge needed to work with children and young people.

After completing further study, learners may secure various rewarding jobs in childcare or early years education. Some potential roles include:

  • Childcare worker
  • Preschool teacher
  • Nursery assistant
  • Nanny

These roles not only allow learners to contribute significantly to a child’s early years but also provide a chance to make a lasting impact on their overall well-being and development.
