Overview

NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Childcare & Education

The Level 3 Award in Childcare and Education Childcare is designed for aspiring individuals and those already employed as childcare workers to acquire the skills and knowledge of what it takes to work with children. Childcare is a blooming and booming industry in the current, modern world. With both parents setting out to establish a career for themselves, the childcare industry has seen a dramatic increase in demand in the past few years. Parents look for highly trained and professional childcare workers to look after their children, who can also monitor and improve their educational and developmental aspects. With the number of childcare businesses increasing, it is important to set the bar by ensuring your childcare business is reliable and trustworthy.

The Level 3 Award in Childcare and Education course will methodically guide you on child development from conception to seven years and on how to monitor and assist them at every stage. Childcare and child development impact the overall wellbeing of the child and this concept will be covered throughout the course. You will also be educated on the different approaches that can be used in child education to assist in their development. Once you have successfully passed the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Childcare and Education, you can progress to the Level 3 Certificate in Childcare and Education (601/3999/7) and then onto the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education (Early Years Educator) (601/4000/8).

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
