Earn While You Learn
This course is ideal if you want to learn how to promote a child’s physical, emotional and social development.
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.
About The Course
The EYE 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 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 and maths unless you have any exemptions or have previously achieved the required levels.
As with anything worthwhile, this course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it.

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