This qualification is designed to help learners build the knowledge and skills needed when working under supervision with children and young people from birth to 19 years of age.

What is a Level 2 certificate?
Level 2 certificates are work-related, competence-based qualifications which reflect the skills and knowledge required to do a job effectively. Individuals are assessed for competency in a work situation based on performance, knowledge and understanding of the work concerned.

Who is this qualification suitable for?
This level 2 certificate is suitable for childcare assistants working in a paid or voluntary role within a day nursery, pre-school, primary school or special school undertaking routine tasks associated with the industry.  Childcare assistants working within a primary school should be based in a nursery or reception class in order to meet the criteria within some of the mandatory units. Childminders may also wish to consider starting their training at level 2 rather than level 3, particularly if they are newly registered. Childminders must be working with a minimum of two children to undertake this qualification and these children cannot be their own.

Content

Candidates will study a range of units comprising of:

Introduction to Communication in Health and Social Care or Children and Young People Settings

Introduction to Personal Development in Health and Social Care or Children and Young People Settings

Introduction to Equality and Inclusion in Health and Social Care or Children and Young People Settings

Child and Young Person Development

Safeguard the Welfare of Children and Young People

Maintain and Support Relationship with Children and Young People

Support Children and Young Peoples Positive Behaviour

Contribute to the Support of Child and Young Person Development

Contribute to Children and Young People's Health and Safety

Contribute to the Support of the Positive Environments Children and Young People

Understand Partnership Working in Services for Children and Young People

There are no formal entry requirements for candidates undertaking this level 2 certificate. However, candidates must have good verbal communication skills, have the potential and opportunity to gain evidence for the qualification in the work place and be working with children at an assistant level for at least 12 hours per week.  A minimum of six weeks in placement prior to starting the course is required.  All childcare professionals should recognise that GCSE in English and maths or equivalents would be a benefit to their career. Applicants must be aged 19+.

The certificate comprises 11 mandatory units and several optional units to meet 35 credits for this qualification.

How is the work assessed?
It will be assessed by your tutor or assessor using a range of methods. This could include direct observation in the workplace, a portfolio of evidence, written assignments or a task set by CACHE.  Candidates portfolios are electronic, known as ‘e-portfolio’s’ which allow candidates to submit evidence more easily; receive fast feedback; have continuous access to their portfolio and can easily track progress. 

What training can be offered?
This qualification is delivered via 1-1 sessions using the ‘Assess-Train-Assess’ model.  Candidates are expected to complete a high level of research and workshops at Lincoln College may be offered to support gaps in the candidate’s knowledge.  Depending on funding, there may be a requirement to attend mandatory workshops.

Where there are gaps in knowledge, the assessor will provide taught input to bring the candidate’s knowledge and/or performance up to a competent standard. For example, for the mandatory core unit ‘Introduction to Equality and Inclusion in Health, Social Care or Children and Young People Settings’ the candidate may be able to demonstrate how to interact with individuals to show that they respect their beliefs, culture, values and preferences but may not have knowledge relating to the legislation and codes of practice on equality, diversity and discrimination that apply to their role so the assessor would provide training on this.
