Preparing for placement
During these unprecedented times we have taken the time to listen and understand the concerns of our centres and learners. Based on this, we have created a pre-placement programme for learners who may not be able to access their placements due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
This programme will be a useful tool for learners to work through whilst waiting for a suitable time to begin their placements or re-enter settings.
We have also undertaken a mapping exercise to show where the programme topic areas may assist with learners achieving learning outcomes of their qualifications.
NurseryVue is aimed at Level 2 and 3 Early Years and Child Care learners. It was designed in consultation with learners, tutors and subject specialists in order to give an accurate picture of what it’s like to work in a nursery setting.
Learners will be able to consider the health and safety factors involved in working with children in a nursery by exploring topics such as food and nutrition, physical care routines, unwell children, as well as risks and hazards.
We have adapted this feature for use on a PC with no need for a virtual headset. Each topic has a short introduction, interactive exercise within the nursery, and then three multiple choice questions at the end.
Year two learners
For year two learners, there is one module looking at reflective practice with tasks to carry out and research to undertake. Year 2 learners may also find it interesting to explore NurseryVue.
Other useful resources
Here you’ll find other useful resources which are not new and available on our qualification pages, but we have brought them all together to make things easier for you and your learners.
Your feedback is important to us
We hope that you find the programme useful in the current circumstances and when life returns to a state of new normality, the programme will always help learners prepare for placement. Your feedback is important to us and we use this to adapt and improve our resources, to ensure we are giving you all the support you need.
