BTEC First in Children’s Play Learning and Development L1/2
BTEC Firsts in Child Development is provided for the needs of learners who are aiming to achieve a Level 2 qualification. However, we have recognised that for some learners, achieving this standard in all units within one to two years may not be possible. Therefore, the qualifications have been designed as Level 1/Level 2 qualifications, with grades available at Level 2 and at Level 1 Pass.
BTEC First in Children’s Play, Learning and Development suite is to: inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in early years, or related sectors, where knowledge of child development is relevant
Give learners the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of, and develop skills in, the early years sector, for example, of child development and using play to promote child development and to support progression to a more specialised level 3 vocational or academic course, such as in early years, health and social care or psychology, or progress to an apprenticeship and to prepare to enter future employment
