Required subjects for Children's Learning and Development FD at DN Colleges Group

Applicants will come from a variety of different professional backgrounds which may include childminders; early years practitioners; support assistants working in either a mainstream or special school and teaching assistants working in the early years sector. This might be in a full time or voluntary capacity. Importantly applicants will have at least 2 years full time equivalent experience working in the sector prior to starting the course and will hold a Level 3 qualification (or equivalent) in a work-related area and are additionally required to hold a current DBS Enhanced Certificate. Applicants are required to either be in paid employment or undertaking a voluntary placement for a minimum of 2 days per week. This will underpin practitioners’ experiences in the workplace through studying a variety of modules that will enhance and support career progression. Grade 4/C in GCSE English and mathematics is desirable but not essential. If you do not have these qualifications, you will still be accepted onto the programme but would need to realise that future employment might require this. We are committed to creating educational opportunities for people from a variety of backgrounds and situations. If you have been out of formal education for some time, and/or you do not have the qualifications stated, we might still be able to consider your application and offer you a range of support. We are here to help. Please get in touch to find out more.
