    General information

    The Certificate in Pre School Practice (CPP) is a joint initiative between CACHE and the Pre-school Learning Alliance. It provides a qualification for those who wish to work at a supervised level in the pre-school sector. It is a level two qualification on the QCA National Framework of Qualifications. You will be completing a demanding course with rigorous assessment and you will need to be prepared to make a commitment of time and effort in order to succeed.

    The qualification is primarily designed to prepare candidates to assist in pre-schools and playgroups whilst taking into account the fact that children live in families and communities. Its main focus is on the needs of children aged from 1 year old to 5 years old, who may be in sessional or, increasingly, extended or full-day care.

    Core Units:  

        * Introduction to Pre-School Practice
        * The Needs of Young Children
        * Provide a Safe and Secure Environment in a Community based setting

    Teaching and assessment

    The assessment of each unit is by assignment, one of which is externally marked by the awarding body. To gain the whole qualification all assignments have to be gained at pass or above. The progression to the Diploma in Pre-school Practice is not automatic but primarily requires the student to gain a pass in all units and undertake an interview with the course tutor and have the necessary experience or be in a supervisory capacity. You will need to be working in a pre-school setting either as a volunteer or as a paid member of staff for at least 5-6 hours per week.

    You will need to obtain a placement for 5-6 hours per week in which you can work with children of the appropriate age. It is therefore essential for you to obtain an Enhanced CRB check and inform tutors of any previous convictions, the nature of the offence may affect your employment prospects.
