If you're looking into pursuing a career in childcare, you may well have heard of CACHE qualifications. But what are they, and are they right for you? Here, we give you all the info you need to decide whether a CACHE qualification can help you achieve your childcare career goals.
CACHE offers a wide range of qualifications suitable for individuals involved in early years education, childcare, and health and social care. All CACHE qualifications are divided into five different levels, ranging from Level 1 (entry level) to Level 5 (for experienced professionals).
To earn this Award, you will study the following two units:
Once you have completed these courses, you will have a thorough understanding of young children's health, educational and emotional needs, and the skills needed to promote children's development and wellbeing by working together with their families and other professionals.
The Award is a valuable qualification in its own right - it allows you to gain an understanding of the sector and find out whether this is the right career path for you, and also increases your chance of finding employment in a supervised position.
What is more, if, after finding employment, you decide you'd like to develop your skills in this area still further, then the Award makes the ideal foundation for progressing onto the Level 3 Diploma CACHE qualification, which would allow you to work with young children in a non-supervised capacity.
Moreover, our Level 3 CACHE course is accredited on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), and provides learners with 15 UCAS Tariff points.
At Distance Learning Centre, for example, our Level 3 Award CACHE Course can be taken independent of location and at a pace that suits you. Using paper-based materials and the help of an expert tutor, learners can spread their studies over a 12-month period - making it an ideal option for learners who want to work flexibly around their other professional or personal responsibilities.
