The Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) allows you to complete individual units for the purpose of CPD or build towards a qualification in small steps of learning.

You will be required to be working or volunteering in a Childcare setting for at least 16 hours per week.

Each unit is made up from learning outcomes and each learning outcome is linked to a number of assessment criteria. Each of the assessment criteria must be completed successfully for you to achieve the unit. Each unit has a credit value and level so you may choose a unit from Level 2, 3 or 4 depending on your job role and CPD requirements.

Unit certification can be claimed for all achieved units.

If you are working towards a full Award, Certificate or Diploma, you must achieve the minimum credit requirements for the qualification.

At Tigers Training Centre we are able to offer individual units or packages to meet Learners or Providers needs.

Course Structure

Units will be delivered and assessed through a series of workshops at Tigers Training Centre and through workplace assessment. A timetable for specific units is available on request.
