Course Content

The ambition of Skills for Care and Development is: for a world class workforce. By worls class we mean a competent, credible, sufficient, and confident workforce who are driven and able, to support and surpass individual needs of all adults, children, their families and carers who use services provided by the sector. The role of Skills for Care and Development is to support employers to deliver this workforce that provides quality social care, children, early years and young people's services across the UK. The aim of this framework is: To support the development of a highly qualified, well skilled workforce within the Children and Young People's sector, and ensure that children and young people accessing services in England gain the best possible care and support.

 

Objectives of this framework:

 
To support the development of a workforce that has a shared understanding of the basic requirements for working within the children and young people's workforce (based on the Common Core of Knowledge and Understanding). 1. To ensure that all entrants to the workforce gain the skills and knowledge that will enable them to become an effective member of the workforce and ensure that the safety and well being of children are at the heart of everything they do. 2. To support the development of a flexible workforce in order to help retain those skilled and talented workers within the wider children and young people's workforce. 3. To provide a progression pathway to occupational competence at L3 (and beyond) for those unqualified staff working in the sector or for those looking to join the sector. 4. To provide a progression pathway for staff working in the sector to meet the minimum standards as set out in regulatory and registration requirements. 5. To provide a progression pathway to enable more staff to move towards achieving Early Years Professional Status. 6. To assist in addressing skills gaps around basic literacy, numeracy and ICT.

Entry Requirements

Learners considering this framework should have an interest in working with children and should be suitable to do so as it is a requirement to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Learners will be required to demonstrate competence within their chosen area of the children and young people's workforce and will therefore be required to be employed within the sector. NB: Under "Standard Completion Conditions" (ASCL Act 2009) learners must be employed in order to undertake an Apprenticeship. Currently self employed workers (e.g. child-minders and foster carers) are not able to undertake an Apprenticeship. It is suggested that those foster carers and child-minders who wish to undertake the L3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce do so as a stand-alone qualification. There are no formal qualification entry requirements in order to access the framework at Levels 2 or 3, but learners must complete Key Skills/Functional Skills qualifications (or equivalents) in order to successfully complete the framework. There is a drive to have a minimum Level 3 qualified, graduate led workforce, therefore there are expectations to ensure a good level of Literacy, Numeracy and ICT skills to facilitate learner progression.
