Early Years Advanced Practitioner Certificate Level 4

The CACHE Level 4 Certificate for the Early Years Advanced Practitioner aims to provide professional development opportunities for practitioners working in the early years workforce at Level 3. This qualification will embrace the wealth of experience of the Level 3 early years workforce, and challenge learners in both their daily practice and theoretical understanding. This course is available to start throughout the year.

How will I be assessed?

This qualification will be assessed using an e-portfolio of evidence. Learners will acquire and use skills of leadership, mentoring, coaching and reflection, as they complete the qualification through work-based learning opportunities.

What may it lead to?

Upon achievement of the qualification, learners will be equipped as an advanced practitioner. The advanced practitioner will use crucial leadership skills to mentor others across all roles and responsibilities in the early years workforce. The qualification also provides progression to a Level 5 qualification such as the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services (England). It will also prepare learners for further study of early years in higher education.

Entry requirements

Students need to be over 19 and have been working as a Level 3 practitioner for at least a year. The 19+ Advanced Learner Loan can be used to fund this course.

Additional information & other costs
