Level 1 Award, Certificate and Diploma In Caring for Children (QCF)
This course involves a wide variety of activities which may be carried out as a whole group, in small teams or individually. Students will be involved in project work including producing posters and booklets and presentations to the rest of the group. Students will also have the opportunity of meeting a range of professionals. This course may include work experience at a variety of placements, one of which will take place during the main work experience in Year 11.
CACHE allows pupils the opportunity to consider and discuss questions relating to the meaning of life, the nature of humanity and the recognition of individual worth. They will learn to understand and respect different approaches to child development and how these are influenced by the community into which a child is born. Questions of parents’ responsibilities, attitudes to child care and the provision of communal services will be particularly relevant. Pupils also consider the ways in which children are brought up in different cultures which is both interesting and valuable.
