Course description

Level 3 Playwork

Prior study is not a prerequisite – you just need a passion for the subject matter!

A set of Playwork Principles has been established since 2005, and are incorporated into the national occupational standards. They form the basis of the content of this excellent study pack.

If you are great with kids, and have an ambition to work in the childcare sector as a childminder or nanny, or to help out in a nursery, then this study pack really is for you. It’s also perfect for anybody considering a new career or setting up a small business in Child Minding. If you have always wanted to work with children, but didn’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place!

Suitability - Who should attend?

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

For more information about admission requirements, please contact the provider.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

When you have successfully completed your studies you will receive a certificate of achievement from Focus Awards.

This is a non-regulated qualification which is endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP scheme. They are not nationally recognised qualifications; on successful completion of your studies you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a certificate of completion from Distance Learning Plus.

Focus Awards is regulated as an Awarding Organisation by Ofqual, the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Non-regulated qualifications endorsed under the FQP scheme are ideal for professionals required to demonstrate commitment to CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and for those wanting to gain specialist knowledge of a particular subject.
