Course Overview

Our Childcare Course is paper-based, so it’s really never been easier to develop your knowledge and understanding to achieve the career you’re passionate about. If you’re looking to develop your skills, and are ready to move your career into the childcare sector, this course could be what you’ve been waiting for!

Throughout the course, you will be working to achieve the NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (England); this means you’ll be making fervent strides to becoming a competent practitioner of childcare. The QCF qualification for this course has now replaced the NNEB NVQ qualification.

During your studies, you will be building your foundational knowledge to prepare you for the childcare industry. This means when you’ve completed your learning, you will be positioned to start working in a number of exciting roles, from Nursery Assistant to Nanny!

As the course is paper-based, you won’t have to worry about getting yourself to an Academy or attending classes; you can learn when it suits you, at a pace that’s convenient to your lifestyle. That means if you have work and family commitments, you’ll still be able to develop your skills and progress through the course - you can pick it up as and when you’re able to.

Course Details

It’s recommended that the average completion time for our Childcare Course is 300 hours, which equates to between 4-8 months. This is an approximate figure, as it solely depends on how much time you can dedicate to your studies, and how well you grasp the learning concepts in the course materials.
