Course summary

Course Overview:

The course is flexible and delivered to meet the individual needs of the busy professional practitioner in partnership with their employer. The student adopts the role of a higher level apprentice and the employer acts as a mentor while NWRC teaches knowledge based units and a work placement assessor works with each individual apprentice to extend and build on their knowledge and competency at this level. You will undertake a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Children’s Care, Learning & Development (Management) Wales & NI which provides a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in the sector. Delivered over 2 years with classes delivered weekly. The course aims to provide the apprentices with the skills and knowledge needed to manage practice and lead others in children’s care, learning and development.

The course is for senior practitioners in a leadership or management role who work within early years and childcare settings including day nurseries, crèches, playgroups and pre-school settings. The course is also suitable for practitioners who have an opportunity to be appointed into leadership roles within the setting. Upon successful completion, you can progress into employment or to university. Previous graduates have progressed to an (Hons) Degree in Early Childhood Studies.
