  • Why choose this qualification?

    The primary purpose of this qualification is to increase the understanding of brain-friendly learning in order to become more skilled in an existing role or to prepare to take on a role where individuals will be supporting the learning of others.

    For the Level 2 Award in Brain-friendly Learning in the Community qualification learners will take two mandatory units which cover the concept of brain-friendly learning and its relationship to the accelerated learning cycle, the structure and functions of the brain and how they relate to learning and intelligence types and learning styles. Also, the skills to plan, lead and evaluate the use of brain-friendly learning activities for groups in community settings.

    This qualification can be taken as a means of up-skilling within a current job role, such as a youth worker, play worker, or activity coordinator. It does not, by itself, qualify individuals to take on a specific role but the knowledge and skills covered will be useful in job roles where they are working with community to groups to support their learning. Learners do not need any prior qualifications or specific levels of attainment but they must be aged 16 or over to take the qualification.

    This qualification could support progression to a qualification in a related area such as a Cache Level 2 or Level 3 Certificate in Playwork or Pearson Level 2 or Level 3 Award in (Supporting) Activity Provision in Social Care.
