Child Development

The early years sector focuses on the learning, development and care of children from birth to five years. In the UK, there are approximately 2 million childcare places for children aged under five and many different types of early years settings, ranging from childminders and nannies, to nurseries, crèches and preschools.

The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Child Development is for learners who want to acquire technical knowledge and technical skills through vocational contexts by planning, developing and adapting play opportunities suitable for young children across five areas of development as part of their Key Stage 4 learning.

Students develop knowledge and understanding through applying their learning to work related contexts and gain the skills they need for further study and employment, which could include roles such as paediatricians, psychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.

In Child Development, we are committed to fulfilling the whole school Literacy drivers. Including, improving reading comprehension and vocabulary enhancement.
