Early Years Workforce

Completing a CACHE Early Years Educator qualification will show that you have been trained to the highest of standards, equipping you with the best early years qualification out there. This is now the must-have qualification for all those wanting to work with children from birth to five years of age, and will provide you with the licence to practise and the status of being an Early Years Educator.

The course is two years long and you will need to attend for one evening per week and attend a two day work placement in an early years setting. You will learn through classroom based sessions and practical work experience. You will be visited by an assessor in placement who will observe your practical skills.

This course runs on Tuesday evenings from 16:45-19:45.
