Year 11 Curriculum - Child Development

The main focus of Year 11 is NCFE CACHE Level 2 Technical Award in Child Development and Care : Unit 2.

This unit focuses on holistic development and factors that affect development. Students will be introduced to ways of observing children so that they can support development through appropriate activities and care routines. Students will also learn how to work with children when they move from one setting to another.

Unit 3: This unit assesses pupils through a 1 hour 30-minute written exam paper. It contributes 50% of the final grade.

Content from Unit 1 - the development of children aged 0-5 years; and Unit 2 - knowledge about and working with children 0-5 years is examined through short-answer and longer answer responses. There is no new content in addition to content explored through the two coursework units of study. The exam is usually taken in January of Y11.
