OVERVIEW

This is a nationally recognised qualification gained in the workplace. It is based on National Occupational Standards, which are standards written by employers and experts in the early years sector. This course aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to manage practice and lead others. This course is for senior practitioners in a leadership and management role who work within early years and childcare settings including day nurseries, crèches, playgroups and after school settings.

This course has been developed in response to government plans to produce a more professional leader and manager in early years. The DHSSPS Minimum Standards for Childminding and Daycare for children under age 12 states; ‘in pre-school sessional care or crèches, the person in charge and deputy should have at least a qualification at QCF Level 5 Diploma in Child Care, Learning and Development’ (July 2012).

This course is delivered 3 hours per week over a 2 year period. You will be expected to engage in independent study to achieve the knowledge criteria in all units. Minimum guided learning hours are 577. Lecturers involved in delivering the programme have relevant experience in this area as well as continued professional development.
