About your Course

Studying child development gives you valuable insight into how children grow physically and mentally. It helps you to work effectively with children, understanding how they will respond to one approach or another.

In an education or pre-school setting, this can help you to communicate and teach more effectively, building trust with the child.

An essential part of this process is understanding the impact transitions can have on the child. This can be moving from one class to another, changing schools entirely or family breakdown.

Supporting a child through transitions and other significant events will help them to cope with these changes positively.

Moreover, understanding child development forms part of the curriculum for the various qualifications you can study for if you wish to work with children/young people.

The Early Years Foundation Stage recognises the importance of developing an understanding of a child’s development.

The “child” in this context of this course will include young people up to the age of nineteen years which is the age range defined in the children and young people’s workforce qualifications.

Starting your Career

This course is divided into four units, each of which deals with a particular aspect of development. Each unit also addresses one or more of the course learning outcomes so that when you have completed the entire course you will have achieved all the course learning outcomes as follows:

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Know the main stages of child and young person development
  • Understand the kinds of influences that affect children and young person’s development
  • Understand how to support children and young person’s development
  • Understand how to support children and young person’s positive behaviour
  • Understand the potential effects of transitions on children and young person’s development
