External assessment from: 2018
Performance tables (England): to be confirmed
This qualification is for learners who want to start a career in early years education and care. It is designed for post-16 learners and can be taken as part of a wider study programme. It is an ideal qualification if they are intending to progress directly to employment in the early years sector, or to an early years apprenticeship.
*December 2017: in order to prepare this qualification for inclusion on performance tables in England for 2020 results, some minor changes have now been made to the specification in response to DfE feedback. The changes are to Unit 7: the unit is still about reflection, but it gives more guidance and improved links to the work placement and the first 6 units. This is the synoptic assessment and should only be completed at the end of the programme.
