Course Overview

Every early year’s team needs a confident, skilled leader to help provide an environment in which children and babies can grow and thrive. If you’ve already achieved an early year’s qualification at level three and you’re looking for a course that will take your career to the next level, then the NCFE CACHE Level 4 Certificate for the Early Years Advanced Practitioner is the natural next step.

This diploma is similar to the first year of a degree course and is therefore structured similarly. We will provide relevant reading material, and you’ll be encouraged to conduct independent research before completing an end-of-unit assignment. You’ll gain a detailed insight into the development of babies and children from birth to five years and learn exactly what it means to lead a team working as one to provide a supportive, nurturing setting. You’ll develop your knowledge of how to implement the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, and study policies and procedure as well as other crucial areas such as safeguarding. You’ll work in your own time, at your own pace, and complete your assessments over the course of your normal routine. Simple, and convenient!
