In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

The course covers the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration, plus research to carry out. This will also help you to keep track of how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples in the course materials, but personal research is expected at this level, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is the course accredited?

The course is accredited by CACHE, who are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, The Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales, and the Council for Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.

The course materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

What level is the course at?

The course is a CACHE Award Level 2 (QCF) which would qualify you as a Paediatric First Aid.

How do I send in my work?

You submit your assignments one at a time for marking through our iLearn it Easy online portal. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review or rework the one you submitted.

What happens if I fail an assignment?

Don't worry, your tutor give you some pointers as to where you could improve, and will ask you to resubmit your assignment once you have reworked it.

We will send you ALL the course materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

The course should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if you require more time. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, the course can be completed in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?

There are generally no word counts given for the tutor marked assignments, but it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with the course. Many students start slowly at first, particularly if it's some time since they carried out any study, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Will the course help me get a job?

The course is Nationally recognised as a qualification which would therefore mean you would be a qualified teaching assistant on completing the course. Employers would recognise and accept this qualification.

What if I don’t like the course? Can I send it back?

What is Paediatric first aid?

First aid is needed within many roles to ensure someone on sight can act if there was an emergency. Self-employed people may also need this, such as a child - minder. First aid is needed in child - minding to enable them to be registered.

Why did you become a childminder?

I had been working as a manager in the retail sector for a number of years; when I had my first child, I did not feel ready to go back to that sort of working environment as I always felt very stressed and often worked long hours. I wanted to be able to spend time at home with my daughter and husband but I was unsure what direction to go in. I considered starting my own business but struggled to pin down an idea.

I loved being at home with my daughter, and it was my husband who suggested that I become a childminder. It was ideal because I was already at home with my daughter and we had plenty of space.

I spoke to my local authority about what I needed to do. They explained that I needed to undertake an introductory childcare course (some local authorities require you to complete a course that they run themselves), and that I would also need to do a paediatric first aid course. I completed both of these and was able to apply for registration as a childminder with OfSTED.

What hours would I work as a childminder?

The hours you work are very much set by you, but they would need to fit in with the needs of parents. Some childminders also offer weekend and overnight care for children whose parents who work shifts or unsociable hours.

How much can I expect to earn as a childminder?

Childminders charge on average between £3.63 - £5.42 an hour per child, although this also depends on the area of the country you work in.

You would need to make arrangements for paying tax, insurance and to pay for costs such as toys, equipment and meals. There are start-up grants available in some areas to help with these costs.
