Entry Requirements

Delegates will only need to have been employed in a vocational childcare setting for them to be able to complete level 3 successfully.

How does the assessment take place and for how long?

Delegates will complete their QCFs via e-portfolio and will be appointed a vocationally trained QCF assessor who will help them for the duration of the diploma. Support and resources are also provided throughout. Students can learn at their own pace in their own time. However, most students will successfully finish the programme in around 9 months.

How would I progress further?

Once completing, you can move onto the Level 5 for the CYP Workforce Diploma or you can undertake a range of specialist care courses. These are all available at Universal Care Courses.

What careers can this lead to?

QCF level 3 can help you succeed in a wide range of childcare settings, such as:
• Nursery nurse
• Childminder
• SureStart worker
• Special Educational Needs assistant
• Child care centre manager
• Preschool advisor.


This course can be accredited by FutureQuals, City & Guilds or Highfield and will help your organisation to meet the conditions and standards required by the CQC. If you would require your qualification to be accredited by a certain awarding body, please specify at the time of booking.
