advanced apprenticeship for the children and young people’s workforce

This 12 month apprenticeship consists of:

  • Functional Skills Maths (Level 2) 
  • Functional Skills English (Level 2)
  • Functional Skills ITC (Level 2) 
  • Employment Rights and Responsibilities
  • Personal Learning and Thinking Skills
  • Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce (Early Years Educator)

 

This qualification is suitable for learners who work, or wish to work, with children from birth to 5 years old in a variety of settings.

The qualification prepares learners for employment as Early Years Educators, enabling them to work with children from birth to 5 years and gain knowledge of children aged 5 to 7 years. It develops the knowledge and skills required to work with children from birth to 5 years together with an understanding of the expected development of children aged 5 to 7 years. The qualification also provides opportunities for the confirmation of competence for learners working towards Early Years Educator status.

Learners considering this framework should have an interest in working with children and should be suitable to do so as it is a requirement to undergo an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS). Learners will be required to demonstrate competence within their chosen area of the children and young people’s workforce and will therefore be required to be employed within the sector.

Testimonial

When I was awarded the role of Regional Quality Manager with Connect 2 Care I was delighted and thoroughly welcomed the opportunity to work with a team dedicated to the high provision of care. This exciting managerial role has made me realise that this is where I want to be and my long-term ambition is to raise standards in the care sector as a whole through quality and bespoke care teaching and assessment.

Emma Meadwell Regional, Quality Manager, Connect 2 Care

My employers have been great, they encourage all the staff to undertake proper training,

as well as supporting me in my progress, it means they benefit from having a properly qualified employee and I feel able do a much better job, even though I still have lots to learn!

Lenka Burikova, Care Assistant, Health & Social Care

I’m now working in a more senior position and have been given more responsibility, whichnin turn has given me a great sense of achievement,

I’ve also received additional training in medication and this, together with my other qualifications, enables me to do my job to the best of my ability and to be more confident in my chosen fields.
