COURSE ASSESSMENT

This course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following NCFE guidelines. This means that your qualification will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam.

When you have completed the programme, your tutor needs to verify that you have worked through all parts of any Workbooks, Activities and Exercises successfully.

Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a nationally recognised certificate will be awarded by NCFE as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.

Assessment for the GOAL qualification is through one multi-choice end-test per unit (five in total). These must be arranged by the student at a local GOAL examination centre due to this being a home study course, and at the student's own cost. Full details of the GOAL assessment procedure are contained in the student study pack.

This qualification can also provide evidence of underpinning knowledge towards the achievement of the GOAL Level 3 National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Children's Care, Learning and Development.

COURSE DURATION

We recommended you spend approximately 150 hours of your time studying for the Child Care Learning and Development. The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 3 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but  if you could spare 6 hours a week you could complete it in six months.

Get started today, and you can earn your Level 3 NCFE Award in Child Care Learning and Development in as little as six months, or take up to a year, if you prefer – the choice is yours.

COURSE QUALIFICATION

NCFE / EDI Level 3 Award
Child Care Learning & Development
This course leads to a Level 3 Award for successful learners. This means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and A Levels are at level 3). In accrediting the programme at level 3, NCFE / EDI attests that its learning outcomes are at an equivalent level to a level 3 national qualification.

The NCFE/EDI course is gained through completing the five tutor marked assignments which are included in your study pack. Once we receive your completed registration form you will automatically be registered with NCFE/EDI for this award. Gaining the certificate requires students to meet the assessment criteria in each of the five assignments. Assignments can be completed and submitted at any time suitable to you.

Students wishing to obtain this qualification must independently arrange to sit the examinations at a GOAL examination centre. Details of this process are described below.

To find a centre please contact the EDI customer service team on 08707 202 909 or email customerservice@ediplc.com and an advisor will conduct a centre search for you. This information can be given verbally over the phone. For certain child care occupations (primarily managers and owners of nurseries and child care facilities), OFSTED require a Level 3 qualification listed by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. This GOAL qualification meets this requirement. The qualification is undertaken by completing five examinations (multi-choice style tests) at a GOAL examinations centre. Many schools and colleges in the UK are GOAL centres, and outside of the UK the qualification is branded as LCCI Examinations.

Each of the five units of the GOAL qualification is examined through a multi-choice test comprising 30 questions. Test questions are based solely on the course syllabus and do not require any additional information. The tests can be paper based and sat at fixed dates and times determined by the awarding body. Alternatively some test centres have access to on-line tests which can be sat at anytime by agreement with the test centre. Fees for registration for this qualification are currently £100 but centres will make an additional charge for administration of the tests.

GOAL have over 1000 registered test centres in the UK and many LCCI exams centre around the world.
