Introducing the qualification
This qualification meets the needs of candidates who work, or want to work, in a wide range of children and young people’s settings covering the age range 0 – 7 years with applied knowledge in the early years, 0 – 5 years. Examples of roles include: Care Worker, Childminder, Nursery Nurse and Community Worker. This qualification replaces the City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate in Children and Young People’s Workforce. The Qualification aims to act as a bridging qualification towards the Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Educator. It can provide an inclusive pathway for entrants to the workforce across the children’s workforce and will enable practitioners to count in the ratio at level 2 identified in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Delivery methods
An assessor will be assigned to the workplace to support the candidate through the qualification. This will involve observation of the candidate in the workplace.

Competence based units are assessed in the workplace, using observation, witness testimonies, work products, candidate accounts and questioning.
