Child Psychology Diploma Level 3

Child Psychology Diploma Level 3

Discover the intricacies of a child’s mind, emotions and behaviour with a Child Psychology Diploma course. Childhood is one of the primary times of rapid growth and development, which is why it is necessary to have a formal, industry-specific skillset to help children in their journey to reach their full potential as happy and well-adjusted adults. Learn how exactly the mind of a child operates and the reasons behind why exactly they respond to situations in particular ways, with a specific focus on cognitive development, language and linguistics, social development, Nature/Nurture and more. If you would like to develop knowledge towards a career working with children and psychology, begin a Child Psychology Diploma Level 3 course today.

Professional recognition 

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that NCC Home Learning has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at QLS Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group’s knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables them to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales.
