CACHE Level 2 and Level 3 in Playwork (NVQ)

The aim of the Diploma (NVQ) is to confirm the Learner’s competence to work in a Level 2 and Level 3 work role in a playwork environment such as after school club or a holiday club. It requires the Learner to demonstrate the full application of skills, knowledge and understanding based on the National Occupational Standards, over a period of time in a real work environment. This is reflected by including ‘(NVQ)’ in the qualification title.

The qualification provides opportunities for the Learner to progress to a management role in a playwork environment, to a playwork foundation degree and into the workforce.

Course Delivery, Assessment and Duration

The course will last for 1 year. Attendance is required at monthly training sessions for three academic terms to complete the Diploma. In addition to this Learners will meet their Assessor to plan and carry out work based assessment to build a portfolio of evidence.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for the Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma in Playwork. However it is expected that all Learners will have a good level of literacy to achieve the qualification.
