About The Level 3 Childcare Qualification

The Level 3 Childcare Early Years Educator qualification comprises 13 mandatory units, making a total of 61 credits.

For each unit, you will need to demonstrate the knowledge, understanding and practical skills.

You need to complete all 13 units to achieve your qualification.

Please note, for maths and English, you need either GCSEs or Functional Skills Level 2 to practise as an Early Years Educator, and be included in ratios.

Great news – there are no physical 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 18 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 educator 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 – 15 months if you are working full-time – and longer if you are working part-time.

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

Complete Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People’s Workforce (RQF), English and maths Functional Skills (Level 2), Complete Level 3 Award (RQF) in Paediatric First Aid or Emergency First Aid.

Part 2 is in two sections - duration 3 months:

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

We will upload your Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People’s Workforce (RQF), Level 3 Award (RQF) in Paediatric First Aid or Emergency First Aid and your English and maths Functional Skills Certificates (Level 2) on to the Gateway portal.

You will be required to upload some evidence of your work from your online portfolio.

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