Level 2 Childcare Qualification

Build the Foundations for Best Practice

If you’re looking to start your career in childcare, and you want to learn about how to support the development of young children, this Level 2 course would be ideal for you!

Earn While You Learn

There are a number of reasons why you should consider using Parenta to complete your Level 2 in childcare!

  • Earn money while you’re learning. 
  • There are no student loans!
  • You don’t pay for tuition fees.
  • There are no classes to attend.

    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.

    How Long?

    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.
