Certificate or Diploma for the Children & Young People’s Workforce


This qualification is perfect if you are starting out your career in the Childcare sector. It is the perfect grounding for the basic underpinning knowledge required for nurseries and pre-­schools. The certificate for the Children and Young People's Workforce is a generic qualification that will be relevant across the Children and Young People's Workforce in England. It is mapped to the CWDC Induction Standards and the Children's Care Learning and Development National Occupational Standards.

Who will benefit?

Level 2 will suit you if you work, or are about to work, in a supporting role as a nursery assistant, creche worker or special educational needs assistant. This qualification will also benefit you, if you want to work with children, but will generally work under supervision.

The Level 3 diploma is aimed at those people already working in the Children and Young People sector. For example, you may be working as a childminder, day care supervisor, SureStart worker, community nursery nurse or as a learning mentor. You may or may not have some supervisory responsibilities. You want to be in sole charge of children, for example managing a room in a nursery.
