This qualification introduces the responsibilities of being a parent. It covers the welfare and care of babies and young children allowing students to develop their knowledge of supporting a child's development.

The units are taken from the Level 2 Certificate Introducing Caring for Children and Young People and can be transferred over should you wish to complete the Certificate.



Support is provided for up to 12 months but it is entirely up to you how quickly you work through the course. The estimated study time is 60 hours so if you average around 5 hours a week study you would complete in 3-4 months. If you put more time in you can complete quicker.

The course is delivered hard copy in folders or emailed to you if you choose the online option. These are yours to keep so you can write on them, make notes etc. Your pack will contain everything you need to begin your course including your lessons, tutor and support information. In addition a study guide explaining how to get started along with comprehensive study notes for each element of the course is included.

Support is provided throughout the course via a tutor who can be emailed at any time should you come across anything you are unsure of. There is also a support team by telephone. Don't hesitate to ask if you are unsure!

Preparation for the Responsibilities of Parenting Level 2 Award is split into three units. At the end of each unit you will complete an assignment which you will email to your tutor. An assignment is a set of questions based upon the unit you have just studied.  If there are any areas for improvements or anything that you have misunderstood you will always have the opportunity to re-submit. 

The good news is there are no exams! Once you have completed all the assignments you complete the course.


There are no prior qualifications required. The minimum age is 14.
