They provide an understanding of the management of play environments and the line management of other staff. This is an essential qualification for those working unsupervised in play settings.
This programme will develop your staff’s knowledge of the development of children through play. They will gain advanced skills and knowledge to provide quality childcare within a playwork setting such as after school clubs, breakfast clubs, holiday clubs. As all centres are required to have a member of staff trained to a level 3 in playwork this qualification is ideal to ensure your staff are qualified to the appropriate level.
This programme covers a range of mandatory and optional units to develop advanced skills and knowledge of playwork. We will work with you to select the most beneficial units for your business and staff.
Bury College apprenticeships are work based training programmes which are carried out in the workplace. 20% of your apprentice’s time will be dedicated to off the job training which equates to one and a half hours a day or one full day a week. Off the job activities can include:
Functional Skills are a vital part of an apprenticeship. Functional Skills provides the essential knowledge, skills and understanding needed to operate confidently, effectively and independently. These are available at Level 1 and Level 2 and the level your employee will work towards will depend on the previous qualifications they have achieved, the results of an assessment prior to their apprenticeship and the requirements of the apprenticeship they are completing.
If your employee has not already achieved Level 2 English and maths they must study for and take the tests for Level 2 English and maths and achieve Level 1 English and maths for the Level 2 Apprenticeship.
As well as college attendance, a Bury College assessor will visit your employee on a regular basis and support them with developing their electronic portfolio which is used as evidence for their end point assessment. During these meetings observations, question and answer sessions and reviews will take place.
