Level 3 Children and Young People’s Workforce (EYE)

Enhance your knowledge to give back more to children

This course is ideal if you want to learn how to promote a child’s physical, emotional and social development.

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.

About The Course

The EYE qualification (formerly NVQ Level 3 in Childcare) is made up of 17 mandatory units. For each of these units, you’ll need to demonstrate your knowledge, understanding and practical skills as part of your childcare apprenticeship.

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 Long? 

As with anything worthwhile, this level 3 childcare qualification requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This can be between 12-20 months, but afterwards, you’ll have the fantastic feeling of becoming a professionally recognised Early Years Educator and set yourself up for a long and rewarding childcare career.

Do I Need To Attend Classes?

Great news – 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 outside of work.

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.
