Course Objective:

This programme assesses and develops the knowledge and skills of those employed working with children in settings or services where the main purpose is care, learning and development through play e.g. nurseries, day-care, crèches, or childminders.

The level 2 Foundation Apprenticeship is suitable for people who work under supervision in settings.

Course Delivery:
The qualification is divided into two components: the Core qualification, which develops and assesses your knowledge and the Practice qualification, which focuses on and assesses your practical competencies; the latter is delivered via self-directed study (for example, producing plans, observations and reflections).
An assessor will visit the candidate at their workplace once a month for a minim. In addition to this, they will be set approximately 4 hours of work to complete before the next meeting.
The learners will have to have an allocated mentor to carry out planning meetings and who will support the learner throughout the qualification and meet with the learner for a minimum of 1 hour a week.
The Essential Skill Qualifications (if required) consist of controlled tasks, tests and group collaboration. These will be done through workshops held at BTSL or your place of work and will help develop your numeracy, literacy and digital literacy skills.
CCPLD Level 2: Core Qualification
Learners will be reviewed once a month by an assigned assessor in their workplace once a month. Learners will be required to be away from the children for these visits.
Assessment: Learners will undertake three 60 minute assessments as well as one 75 minute multi-choice test. These can be carried out in the workplace as long as an appropriate environment is provided. If this isn’t possible, the learner will need to attend BTSL
