Our Children and Young People’s Workforce advanced apprenticeship lasts approximately 18 months. During the apprenticeship the learner completes practical on-the-job training to get real experience and improve their skills. Learners also study the underpinning theory behind their job role to help them understand their job, resulting in increased motivation, ambition and productivity.

Level 3 is aimed at those people already working in the Children and Young People sector, for example: day care supervisors, community nursery nurses or learning mentors, with or without supervisory responsibilities. The aim is to build skills so that the learner can then be in sole charge of children, for example managing a room in a nursery.

Once the apprenticeship has been achieved, the learner has the opportunity to advance to further education and qualifications, such as a the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services or a Foundation Degree.

Composition of the qualification

During the level 3 apprenticeship learners complete the following qualifications:

  • Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People’s Workforce
  • Level 2 Functional Skills

The diploma is built from a selection of mandatory and optional units. Prevista works alongside the learner and employer to ensure the right units are selected for the individual and their job role, maximising the positive impact for both the learner and employer.

The tutors will aim to deepen the learner’s knowledge, understanding and experience of equality and diversity, and ensure their well-being and personal safety.

Mandatory units include:

  • Understand child and young person development
  • Promote child and young person development
  • Understand how to safeguard the wellbeing of children and young people
  • Develop positive relationships with children, young people and others involved in their care

Optional: the learner chooses units from the optional section. Examples include:

  • Assessment and planning with children and young people
  • Professional Practice in learning, development and support services
  • Support young people in relation to sexual health and risk of pregnancy

Entry requirements

A level 2 qualification such as GCSEs at grades A* to C, BTEC First Diploma, intermediate Apprenticeship or relevant work experience.
