Play, Learning and Interpersonal Skills Award (Online)

This fully subsidised Level 2 award will be completed online, with access to support from a personal tutor. If you work with children, or wish to work with children, you will gain knowledge in two significant areas:
• Interpersonal skills when working in a team
• The importance of children’s play

Interpersonal skills will support those wanting to increase their confidence when working in a childcare setting.

Play is a crucial part of childcare, and topics for this unit include increasing your creativity and imagination in the development of a child, and understanding the importance of playing and play opportunities within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Once you have completed this award, you could progress onto other Level 2 CPD courses, Level 2 Certificate in Child Development, or use this award for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) within your current role.
Please note, you must be aged 19+ and have lived in the UK for the last 3 years. You must also be resident in the South West of England to claim full subsidy.

Studying an Adult Community Learning course allowed me to learn new skills from experienced tutors and develop my hobby further. I really enjoyed every part of it.Stephen Wilks-Brown
