It is also a valuable course for anyone who wants to have a family in the future or who wishes to go further in the caring professions – e.g. children’s nurse, early years teacher, health visitor or if you aspire to work in a playgroup or nursery. 

The Level 2 Technical Award in Child Development and Care consists of 3 units: 

Unit 1 - An Introduction to Working with Children 0-5yrs
