Placement hours

During placement, learners will need support from a professional within the Real Work Environment.

To aid Assessors with discretionary decisions concerning individual experience in real work environments across the age range from 0-5 years: direct observations must continue to be used to assess competence with the age range the learner is working with but can be complemented with expert witness testimonies, reflective accounts including prior knowledge and professional discussions to assess knowledge, skills and competence outside of this age range.

Throughout this document, there is a reference made to babies. Please note that babies include children from birth to 1 year and 11 months of age. Our preference for best practice will source evidence for the assessment criteria from direct observation and first-hand experience, however, we appreciate that this may not always be possible due to accessibility and work-related employment, in such cases, evidence to meet assessment criteria can be submitted through alternative methods including:

  • reflective accounts
  • professional discussions
  • summaries from interviews with practitioners.

The Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education (Early Years Educator) prepares learners to become Early Years Educators, enabling them to work with children from birth to 5 years and gain knowledge of children aged from 5 to 7 years.

    The purpose of lorem ipsum is to create a natural looking block of text (sentence, paragraph, page, etc.) that doesn't distract from the layout. A practice not without controversy, laying out pages.

    The passage experienced a surge in popularity during the 1960s when Letraset used it on their dry-transfer sheets, and again during the 90s as desktop publishers bundled the text with their software.
