Are you looking to complete some child care training? Courses from The Skills Network are perfect for individuals who wish to study and gain new skills, but who don’t wish to do so in a classroom environment. Available via distance learning, this qualification will give you an introductory understanding of childcare through exploring young children’s development, the value and importance of play, how to plan a healthy diet and the importance of safeguarding and welfare.

Course Contents

Unit 1: Young children’s development

This unit will explore the stages of development of young children from birth to three years. Alongside this, you will learn about how positive environments support the development of young children.

Unit 2: The value of play to young children

Within this unit you will learn about the necessity of play to young children’s development as well as demonstrating different play activities suitable for young children from birth to five years old.

Unit 3: Importance of play for early learning

This unit will take you through the vital importance of creativity and imagination in the development of a child. You will learn about how to organise a cooking activity for children as well as the particular importance of books and stories in child development.

Unit 4: Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people

This unit examines legislation, guidelines, policies and procedures for safeguarding the welfare of children and young people (including e-safety). You will look at what action to take when children or young people are injured or ill and when complete, you will be able to recognise emergency procedures as well as how to respond to suspicions that a child or young people has been abused, harmed or bullied.

 

Unit 5: Use food and nutrition information to plan a healthy diet

This unit will help you to build an understanding of how to make healthy and nutritional food choices for children. You will develop knowledge of food labels and what to look out for to ensure that children are given a balanced diet.

You will be assessed throughout your study by a series of assessment questions which are built into the course. Your answers are automatically saved and are available for you to revise and edit at any point before submission. You submit your assessment answers to your Tutor for marking, who will give you feedback on each question.
No. The communication you and your staff have with a Tutor or Learning Support Advisor will be via telephone, email or through The Skills Network’s online system, EQUAL.
If you do not pass an assessment, don’t worry. Once your Tutor has marked your work, you will receive an email instructing you to log into the system. If your result is ‘Refer’ this means your Tutor has highlighted some areas which need more attention in order for you to pass. You will then be able to re-attempt and re-submit the questions you didn’t pass first time round.
No. There are no maximum or minimum word counts for the assessments. It is important that you demonstrate to your Tutor that you have fully understood the question and applied your knowledge to each answer in a logical way. If your Tutor feels that an answer needs a little more detail, they will point this out in your feedback and you will be able to go back to the answer and rework it until you pass.
Your certificate will take between eight and twelve weeks to arrive. Once you have completed the course and submitted your final piece of work, your assessments will be marked and your work will go through an external quality assurance process. Once this process is complete, we send your certificate to you as soon as possible. If you require a confirmation of your achievement while you await your certificate, please contact us and we can send you a formal letter of achievement.
In order to be as flexible as possible, we are able to offer different learning and assessment methods for each learner to choose from. Learners are able to select from paper-based learning resources and paper-based assessment books which should be returned in the post on completion. Or they could choose to be assessed online but use paper-based learning resources to learn from.

Learners can see which assessment methods are available on each course page throughout the website.
