Entry Requirements

Learners considering this award should have an interest in working with children and
should be suitable to do so as it is a requirement to undergo an enhanced Criminal Records
Bureau (CRB) 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. childminders and
foster carers) are not able to undertake an Apprenticeship. It is suggested that those foster

People's Workforce do so as a stand-alone qualification.
