This one year level one course takes place at our North Kensington Centre. You will consider topics such as how we protect children, play, development and health and safety. There is no work placement requirement for level one, although voluntary work is always encouraged. You will be introduced to Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Settings and what it means to work in these sectors. You will learn about health and safety, safeguarding and other interesting topics such as how to organise yourself, work in a team, healthy eating and many others.
