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.

There are a number of reasons why you should consider using Parenta for your childcare training course!

  • Earn money while you’re learning. 
  • There are no student loans!
  • You don’t pay for tuition fees.
  • There are no classes to attend.
*Government funding available. Complete the form to see if you qualify.

    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.

    How Long? 

    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, but 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 will be required to do some independent learning. You should set aside up to 10 hours a week to work towards your Level 3. You may prefer to split this time up into a few evenings a week and some time at the weekend, but it’s entirely up to you.

    Do I Need To Attend Classes?

    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 part of your level 3 childcare course, you’ll benefit from phone and email support from your Parenta assessor if there’s anything at all that you need help with.

    I am so glad that I had the chance to do my Level 3 childcare course with Parenta, it has been a delightful experience very smooth and efficient. Thanks to Tina Butler everything was always on time, from setting new assignments to marking them. Tina was very helpful during my course and was always easy to contact when needed. I had set goals for myself and we have spoken about this with Tina Butler that I wanted to become a room leader, I am happy and proud to say I have become the baby room leader!!

    I just want to say a massive thank you to Jeanette for getting me through my apprenticeship after having such a struggle with the many assessors I have had. She has got me through my apprenticeship in 8 weeks and finally taught me in a way that I could understand. I am extremely thankful to her.

    Katie was wonderful, the support and encouragement I got was fantastic.

    Great service! Pippa is an amazing hard working assessor and needs more recognition and a pay rise for the amount of work load she has put on her.

    Linda was honestly the most helpful assessor – she understood the way I learn and am able to complete assignments and was always available for any help or assistance! She was so warm natured and honestly cared about my course and progress. Couldn’t thank her enough, I feel like without her help I would have fallen really far behind.

    Linda was my saviour! She gave me support throughout and if I had any questions, she was always there at the end of the phone or an email. Nothing was too much for Linda and with her help and support, I am now level 3 qualified.

    I think Fiona was incredible! I have only great things to say about her, she helped me to achieve the most in the quickest time and I’m over the moon! I never thought I’d be able to do it but with Fiona’s support I achieved everything I thought I wouldn’t!
