About your Course

A career in childcare gives you the opportunity to work with young children in a number of different settings. You will work with children from infants to pre-school, helping them grow and develop as individuals.

In a childcare setting you will help children develop everything from problem solving skills to their first friendships. The skills they develop in a nursery or childminder setting are ones that they carry forward for the rest of their lives.

This online course will introduce you to key legislation around children and safeguarding. You will also learn about life stages, common ailments in children and how to treat them.

You will also learn about child psychology and the emotional & cognitive development children go through in their early years.

The course will also cover theories around learning, intelligence and socialisation. All of which will help you work with children and build a structured plan around their needs and personal goals.

If you wish to build your career in the childcare sector, you could continue your child care training courses to become a child minder, nursery nurse, play worker and more.

This course is ideal for building a foundation of knowledge before moving on to our Child Minder (CACHE Level 3) course, which can form part of the full CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Children's and Young People's Workforce should you wish to progress to this.

Getting Started

This online course will help you to better understand and support the children you work with in an early years setting. You will be able to help them grow as individuals, by helping them to understand social interactions and learn through play.

This course is especially useful for anyone interested in a career in a nursery or child minder setting. It can also provide you with a foundation for further studies in child behaviour.

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
