Course Description

The Child Care Home Practitioners - QLS Level 3 Course gives a valuable insight into understanding the role of learning and development in childcare settings.

The course deals with the legal requirements for setting up a child care business from your own home and covers the frameworks of early education including Birth to Three, Every Child Matters and The Early Years Foundation Stage. You will also gain a full understanding of the personal and interpersonal skills you will need to develop your career in childcare.

The culture of long hours and the fact that more and more women are returning to work after having children, have brought about something of a mini-revolution in childcare. In today’s busy world, the need for quality childcare has never been greater, and that’s why this exciting Child care Home Practitioners course is such good news. If you have ambitions to work in the child care sector – as a childminder or nanny, or in a nursery or crèche, for example – this is the course for you. You’ll find it interesting, challenging and highly rewarding, and it could lead to a whole new exciting career playing a vital role in the care, development and education of children.

This course is an ideal introduction to the world of Child Care. However this course alone will not give the qualification you would need to work in this sector. Please be aware that this course provides all the underpinning knowledge to work with children, but you would need a vocational qualification as a minimum to work with children. Nonetheless, if you want a good grounding in the theory of Child Care, prior to, or in conjunction with, hands-on vocational training, this course is ideal.

On successful completion of this course students will receive a QLS Level 3 Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards.
