Description

This popular and flexible course has been revised to meet the new standards.

Components and/or options

The Diploma in Pre-school Practice will enable those working in, or wishing to work in, a pre-school setting to gain the skills required to look after young children in a more supervisory role.

It is ideal for full, part-time or volunteer early years workers. To gain the Diploma you must complete three core units and one optional unit of your choosing.

The course covers Early Learning Goals for children's learning and OFSTED regulation and inspection. The CACHE registration fee is not included in your course fee.

To gain the full Diploma, you must complete four units - all three core units, plus one of the optional units of your own choosing. You will need to let us know your option unit choice when you enrol. You can enrol on the complete course all at once, or sign up for one unit at a time.

Before you enrol please read the 'Choosing the correct level' information on the right hand side of this page.

Entry requirements and hours of study

  • There are no formal entry qualifications for the Diploma, however, CACHE recommends that you have completed the CACHE level 2 Certificate in Pre-school practice (or a relevant Level 2 qualification). You must be at least 16 years old at the date of registration for the award and 18 when you actually gain the award. You will need to show that you have adequate level of general education to cope with the demands of the DPP programme.
  • To gain your qualification you will need to work for a minimum of 360 hours in pre-school setting, ideally eight hours a week. This is a CACHE recommendation, and NEC and the PLA also believe that attendance in a pre-school setting is essential to your success.
  • CACHE expect the total number of hours for the completion of the course to be 600 hours. This breaks down into 360 hours in a setting, 60 hours recommended study hours for Core Unit 1, 90 hours recommended study hours for Core Unit 2, 60 hours for Core Unit 3, and 30 hours for the chosen Option Unit.

Assignments

There are nine assignments, four of which count towards your final mark. Of these, three are marked by your tutor and sent to CACHE for moderation, the other is assessed entirely by CACHE. Most learners require approximately 600 hours to complete the course, plus additional time for some assignments and any relevant work experience.
