V Certs – Child Development and Care in the Early Years

Child Development and Care in the Early Years

Studying our Level 1/2 Technical Award in Child Development and Care in the Early Years will help pupils learn about the effects of biological and environmental factors on the growth of a child, the importance of play and activities in a child’s healthy development, and understand the ways to make a positive impact in this field. 


This webinar outlines the qualification structure, delivery, and assessments of the V Cert, as well as what learners will study, teaching guidance, how the qualification is assessed (including assessment objectives and weightings), grading information, and potential progression opportunities. Finally, it will showcase some of the learning resources, teaching materials and support that is available to you and your centre.

What’s next?

at college or sixth form
Apprenticeship: as an early years educator or teaching assistant
