assessment of each learner prior to the start of the programme to ensure that
they are entered for an appropriate type and level of qualification.

numeracy skills, along with basic computer skills. Experience within childcare
or a Level 1 Childcare qualification is not essential but would be of benefit to
students who wish to undertake this course.
