This qualification’s aim is to provide an introduction to the early development of the brain in babies and young children from birth to 7 years of age. It looks at how the social brain develops, the limbic system and self-regulation. This qualification is suitable for learners aged 16 or above who are interested in working in the early years sector. No previous experience of working in an early years setting is required.

  Key Info

You will learn about the development of children in their early years of life. You will begin to understand the techniques that children adopt in order to develop the critical skills that they need as they progress through life.

There are 2 mandatory units.

Entry to this course requires learners to be a minimum of 16 years of age.

Experience in the workplace is not essential as this is a knowledge-only qualification.

Both units are internally assessed.

This qualification doesn’t lead to a specific job role but it provides continued professional development of new knowledge and skills and supports the Practitioner role in the workplace. Also, when undertaken in conjunction with our Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner, it provides an overall package that allows for further progression in the early years sector. Learners could progress to the following qualifications:

• Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner
• Level 3 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Early Years Education and Care
