Child Development

Becoming a parent is one of life’s major experiences, and it is also one of life’s major responsibilities. Responsibility for the well-being of a child starts before conception and this course aims to provide students with an overview of the roles and responsibilities of parenthood alongside an understanding of reproduction and pre-conceptual, antenatal and postnatal care. This qualification is for learners aged 14-16 who wish to develop applied knowledge and practical skills in child development. It is designed with both practical and theoretical elements, which will prepare students for further qualifications in child care, health and social care, psychology, sociology and biology. All students will study ‘Health and Well-being for Child Development’; they will understand the equipment and nutritional needs of children from birth to five years, and they will understand the development norms of a child from birth to five years.
