Children's Play, Learning and Development: Early Years Assistant, BTEC Diploma

What will I do on this course?

This Level 2 early years course provides the knowledge and experience you’ll need to gain employment under supervision in an early years setting or progress to a Level 3 course.

As part of the course, you’ll spend two days a week in a work placement in an early years setting, which we will organise for you. You’ll learn about children’s play; promoting and supporting development; working with parents, carers and fellow professionals; and meeting the needs of individual children.

You’ll also explore ways to promote early literacy and numeracy and this includes developing your own English and maths skills.

How will I be assessed?

You’ll be assessed through a portfolio of evidence, work placement observations and two exams.

What could I do after this course?

You’ll have the skills to work under supervision in a range of early years settings, including pre-schools, nurseries and after-school clubs, and as a child minder or nanny. You could also increase your skills with the Level 3 Early Years course or an early years apprenticeship at Weston College.


Entry Requirements
