About The Level 2 Childcare Course

The course is made up of a number of units each with a credit score.

You must complete all 37 credits to achieve the Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner.

This course will include personal learning and thinking skills, employment rights and responsibilities as well as Functional Skills in English and maths.

You’ll be assessed through a mixture of ‘at home’ and ‘at work’ tasks.

Before this happens, your tutor will talk with you to find out what learning style suits you best and tailor your assessments around it.

Great news – there are no classes to attend at a college, but you will be required to attend virtual teaching and learning sessions that we provide.

You will have regular contact with your Parenta tutor either remotely or face to face to observe you at work and check you’re fulfilling the course requirements.

Your tutor will set you course work to complete on OneFile our e-learning platform and will agree submission timings with you.

It is important that you meet your submission deadlines to ensure you complete your qualification on time.

As with anything worthwhile, this course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This will be up to 15 months in total if you are working full-time – and longer if you are working part-time. 

But remember, afterwards, you’ll have the fantastic feeling of becoming a professionally recognised early years practitioner and set yourself up for a rewarding career.

You will be assigned your own tutor to support you throughout your qualification. However, you may be required to do some independent learning.

The course is made up of 2 parts, as follows:

Main part of the course – 12 months if you are working full-time (longer if you are working part-time)

The units are based around your skills, knowledge and behaviours which you gain throughout your apprenticeship.

English and maths Functional Skills Level 1 (and Level 2 attempted if not exempt)

Part 2 is in two sections - duration 3 months:

Preparation for your End Point Assessment (this is called Gateway).

Upload your English and maths Functional Skills Certificates

Evidence of portfolio work

End Point Assessment consisting of a multiple choice test around your skills, knowledge and behaviours and a professional discussion, supported by your portfolio.

However, this isn’t guaranteed, and the amount varies depending on applicable funding streams. A training adviser will talk you through your funding application during the course registration process.

The cost depends on the qualification applied for and your local authority. If you wish to find out how much your course may cost without funding, please call 0800 002 9242.
