Child Development is an engaging qualification where students will use their learning in practical, real-life situations, such as: 

  • preparing a feed or meal for a child 
  • choosing suitable equipment to use in a childcare setting 
  • planning suitable play activities 
  • helping to prevent accidents in a childcare setting. This will help students to develop independence and confidence in using skills that would be relevant to the Childcare sector. 


 The qualification will also help students to develop learning and skills that can be used in other life and work situations, such as: 

  • research skills – for example, within the NEA set assignment students will need to complete research for equipment to help make decisions on which to choose and explain why 
  • communication skills – for example, within the coursework set assignment students will need to make recommendations to the nursery on how accidents can be prevented.
