The course is made up of 3 groups of units. Each unit has a credit value and in order to achieve the qualification, the learner must complete enough units to earn at least 30 credits.
The first group is mandatory:
• Child and young person’s development
• Safeguarding communication and professional relationships
• Health and safety
• Supporting positive behaviour
• Equality diversity and inclusion
The next group is about looking at the school in context (all learners must achieve one unit from this group)
The final group is the optional competence units (all learners must achieve a minimum of one unit from this group)
Some examples of the sort of areas covered are supporting children and young people in travel outside the setting, in extracurricular activities, in the use of ICT, providing displays, bilingual learners and support for therapy.
Our assessor will provide full details of optional units at induction and work with the learner to choose the most appropriate for their individual needs.
