  • Specification code: 3715
  • QAN code: 603/0504/6

Our Level 1/2 Award in Children’s Learning and Development is designed to engage young learners who want to study how children develop from age 0 to 10 years old. Learners will also learn about a broad range of roles and careers within the childcare sector.

We have taken the best elements from our existing GCSE Child Development and offered a broader, more contemporary range of practical study options.

Learners will put their knowledge into practice through a combination of real-life case studies and research tasks, practical experience and class-room study.

Although this qualification won’t be included in performance tables for 2019, we’re offering these Level 1/2 Awards to schools and colleges as we believe they are valuable qualifications for practical learners.
