Level 3 Early Years Practitioner


"Shipley College's Level 3 Early Years Practitioner course is an 18-month program that covers partnership working, children's holistic development, maths and literacy development, and requires the production of a longitudinal study. This course provides a recognized qualification for those wishing to work with children aged 0-5 years, including reception class, and extends the working knowledge to 7 years of age.

The course enhances employment prospects and opens up various roles within the education and NHS sectors, such as a room leader, portage worker, community nurse, or hospital play therapist, to name a few. Graduates can also opt to further their education in HE.

To qualify for the course, learners need a minimum of 1 year of current experience working with children aged 0-5 years or hold an existing Level 2 childcare qualification. As assessments take place in the workplace, learners are expected to remain in the same childcare setting for a minimum of 14 hours per week, on a paid basis, throughout the course.

Taught online every other week in the evening from 5.30-8.30pm, or with a face-to-face option available, this course is suitable for self-motivated individuals who are employed and seeking to advance their careers."
