Qualifications for the Early Years Educator

Practice is observed as learners perform their everyday role

These qualifications cover the care and development of children from birth to 7 years. They require a learner to demonstrate an understanding of development across this age range, however observation of actual working practice is on the age range of the children with whom the learner is currently caring for.

The above qualifications can be undertaken either on a stand-alone basis or as part of an Apprenticeship Standard. Please enquire about funded training.
