Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce (Early Years Educator)
Following a number of enquiries, we wanted to clarify the number of work placement hours that must be completed by learners working towards the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce (Early Years Educator) (QRN: 601/2629/2).
This qualification prepares learners to become Early Years Educators, enabling them to work with and care for children from birth to 5 years, and gain knowledge of children aged 5 to 7 years. Upon achievement of this qualification it is intended that learners will be able to enter the workforce as Early Years Educators. Therefore it is crucial that the correct experience in the workforce is gained by our learners.
Learners registered on this qualification will need to be working, volunteering or on a practical placement as an important part of the assessment process involves evaluating skills in real working situations. We recommend 350 work placement hours across the age ranges.
