The aim of the main qualification within this transition programme is to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of babies and young children from birth to 7 years of age, with applied knowledge in the early (0-5) years.

You will study units such as:

  • Roles and Responsibilities of the Early Years Practitioner

You will continue to study maths if you have not already achieved a grade 4 at GCSE.

You will be required to attend a placement in a childcare setting.

You will also develop study skills that will enable you to progress to the advanced T Level and carry out an employer-led project and an independent research project.

This course will be delivered on-site.

You need flat shoes for your placement and you will be required to wear a College placement shirt.

You will be internally assessed via a variety of methods including exams and controlled assessments.
