WHAT DO I LEARN?:

Early Years is a regulated area which means that to work in a supervised capacity you would require a level 2 competence qualification. This means it must include practical work and be listed on the RQF, the list of qualifications approved by Ofqual, the regulator of qualifications in the UK.

This qualification will guide and assess development of the knowledge and skills required to work in the children and young people's workforce and qualify you to work in a supervised role in an early years setting.

The qualification is fully recognised and accepted by OFSTED.

HOW IT WORKS:

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 300 hours so if you average around 6-7 hours a week study you would complete in 11-12 months. If you put more time in you can complete quicker.

The course is delivered hard copy in folders. 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!

The course is split into thirteen 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. Alongside this you will be putting together a portfolio of evidence. Here you are documenting examples of tasks and activities you complete in the classroom. Your evidence sheets will be signed by the supervisor you work alongside in the setting.

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

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:

You must either be employed or have access to at least one day a work voluntary in an early years setting. This can be split, for example two mornings a week or two afternoons.

If you miss a week for any reason this is fine, the recommendation is simply to ensure you have enough time in class to gather the necessary evidence to complete the course.
