Level 2 Playwork NVQ

Judy Lewis gained confidence, knowledge and strategies to help get on top of her career,

Judy was already working as a Playworker but felt she needed more confidence to help her to move on in her career - this was achieved by her tackling a suitable qualification. 

"I work with a wide range of clients from different backgrounds and of various ages. When working with adults in education you become the avenue that they use to demonstrate their skills and expertise to the school/nursery community. They cease to be just a support worker but actually see their true value" Judy comments.

Judy completed her Playwork NVQ Level 2 qualification at Pembrokeshire College in South Wales.

With her new found confidence and knowledge Judy now facilitates children's self-directed play at her primary school, learning through play being an integral part of the Foundation stage. She is also a Playworker in the after school and holiday club, a job that she finds enjoyable and rewarding.

"I chose this qualification as I had taken time out to bring up my two children and thought I would do the Playwork NVQ Level 2 to give me confidence after being out of the workplace for so long. The qualification was appropriate to my job role and responsibilities and I wanted to gain knowledge and understanding of theory for my own practice."
