Our NCFE CACHE Level 3 Childcare and Education course is perfect for those who want to build their knowledge and skills when working with children. This course is fully accredited by Ofqual and leads on to a job in childcare or early years teaching.
This course will teach you about a variety of topics including child development from conception to seven years of age. It will also cover topics about child’s health.
A childminder is someone who cares for children in their own home, usually while the parents are out at work. Childminders are an important part of the child care and early learning provision in England. They are also a vital source of information and advice for families.
In recent years, developments relating to childcare and the needs of working families have become an integral aspect of social and economic policy in England. This has led to the expansion of childminding services. In addition, the recent Children and Families Bill (Department for Education [DfE] 2013) aimed to encourage growth in this sector by offering greater autonomy for childminders to operate and grow their businesses.
There is a growing body of research examining different aspects of childminding and home-based family day care. However, the majority of this research is undertaken within individual country contexts and often focuses on specific types of practice. There is a clear need for a more research-informed agenda on this topic.
The NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Child Minding RQF course is open to anyone who wishes to study from home and gain a professional qualification in Child Care and Education. This online course can be completed at your own pace and is available for up to 12 months from registration with tutor support. It is a Level 3 Award qualification accredited on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (Ofqual). This course is graded and the qualification can earn you a maximum of 28 UCAS points depending on your final grade.

The course covers a number of essential aspects of working in this area, from setting up the correct environment to understanding the importance of ensuring the safety of children. Students will also learn more about how to care for children from birth through to age seven and how to support their health and wellbeing.
This course is self-study, meaning that learners can take the course at their own pace.

Early Years Workforce (Early Years Educator)
For those who want to become a childcare worker or start their own home-based nursery, this NCFE CACHE Level 3 course teaches you the basics of child development and the best ways to foster healthy relationships with children. You’ll also learn about how to run a safe and compliant service that follows government standards and health and safety procedures.
You can also choose to focus your studies on topics like reflective practice for professional development, professional partnerships in early years, and the role of play in young children’s learning and development. As you complete your course, you’ll be assessed through a portfolio and an exam. Your online tutor will support you through these assignments and provide feedback.
Those interested in careers in early childhood education may be able to progress on to roles like lead teacher or program director with a degree in education and childcare administration. These courses provide the knowledge and skills to evaluate programs, train teachers, and implement improvements in schools and early childhood settings.
The Level 3 Certificate for the Early Years Workforce prepares learners to become an Early Years Educator, allowing them to work with children from birth to five years and gain knowledge of children up to age seven. This qualification has been allocated UCAS points and is ideal for those looking to move on to further study at university.
Supporting Teaching and Learning
This course provides learners with a detailed understanding of supporting teaching and learning in school environments. This will help them to secure a role as an assistant in schools and provide support for teaching and learning activities. It also covers how to promote equality, diversity and inclusion when working with children, young people and teachers.
The course is available to complete online and does not require any work placement, so can be studied from home at a time that suits the learner. This means it’s a great option for anyone who wants to get into this profession but may not have a school placement available.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a NCFE CACHE Level 3 Certificate of Achievement. This is independently accredited at level 3 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As a result of this, it’s widely recognised by employers and can open up plenty of career opportunities for those who successfully complete the course. It can also be used to progress further on into a higher education qualification, such as an Early Years Educator course. This would then lead to a higher salary and more opportunities in the sector. The higher qualifications can give you a much more in-depth understanding of childcare and the role of an assistant teacher or support worker.Cache courses in Dubai
