What's Involved

The ambition is: for a world class workforce. By world class we mean a competent, credible, sufficient, and confident workforce who are driven and able, to support and surpass individual needs of all adults, children, their families and carers who use services provided by the sector. The aim of this framework is: To support the development of a highly qualified, well skilled workforce within the Children and Young People's sector, and ensure that children and young people accessing services in England gain the best possible care and support.

The duration of this Apprenticeship is generally 12-18 months.

Entry Requirements

  • GCSE Maths Grade E or Functional Skill in Maths Level 1;
  • GCSE English Language Grade E or Functional Skill in English Level 1;
  • Working in a job role such as Early Years Worker/Assistant, Care Worker/ Assistant, Assistant Youth Support and Community Worker.

Where will it take me?

By the end of your apprenticeship you will have achieved:

  • Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce;
  • Functional Skill in Maths Level 1 (if required);
  • Functional Skill in English Level 1 (if required);
  • Functional Skill in ICT Level 1 (if required);
  • Employee Rights and Responsibilities;
  • Personal Learning and Thinking Skills.

This pathway is intended to provide learners with a good starting point within the sector, working under supervision (e.g. pre-school assistant, nursery assistant). However it is expected that learners will progress, either onto the Advanced Apprenticeship pathway (providing the learner meets the entrance criteria) or onto the L3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce as a stand-alone qualification. This will ensure that, as practitioners, they meet the appropriate level of competency, as determined by registration and regulatory requirements. Progression to L3 or Advanced Apprenticeship will also enable them to move to higher levels of work or enable them to work unsupervised, e.g. nursery supervisor, childminder, foster carer. This pathway also provides a good opportunity for learners to move across the wider children's workforce, should they wish to do so. This is possible due to the "commonality" of much of the learning contained within the combined qualification - there are a number of units that are shared across qualifications in related occupations (e.g. schools support services, care, health, play work).

Course Assessment Method

Where the qualification does not specify the use of a particular assessment method, then learners can be assessed by a range of methods including; Direct observation of tasks or activities, examination of work products produced by learners (e.g. diary notes, site notes, completed reports), review of records of ‘question and answer’ sessions covering specific aspects of the knowledge and understanding and Professional discussion. All of these assessment methods will build your portfolio of evidence.
