About The Course
Please be aware you will be required to do an initial assessment in order to qualify for government funding and achieve the minimum entry requirements for each course.
You will also be required to complete functional skills exams for English, Maths and ICT unless you have any exemptions or have previously achieved the required levels.
How is The Course Structured?
You’ll be assessed through a mixture of ‘at home’ and ‘at work’ tasks, which your assessor will walk you through, working with you to find out what learning style suits you best, and tailoring your assessments to it.
The level 2 childcare course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This can be between 12 and 18 months, but afterwards, you’ll have the fantastic feeling of becoming a professionally recognised childcarer and set yourself up for a long and rewarding career in childcare.
Do I Need To Attend Classes?
There are no classes to attend! Your Parenta assessor will visit you on a regular basis to observe you at work in your childcare setting and check you’re fulfilling the course requirements. You’ll also be expected to complete online coursework, and will have the benefit of phone support from your Parenta assessor if there’s anything at all that you need help with.
We have a team of recruitment specialists who are dedicated to helping you find the ideal apprenticeship, giving you the right start to a rewarding career in childcare.
