Level 2 Early Years Practitioner Course

Our Level 2 Early Years Practitioner online course will help you prepare for school job roles such as; Classroom Assistant, Teaching Assistant, Early Years Practitioner, School Administrator, School Caretaker and Learning Support Assistant in a primary school setting.

This is a combined course with modules from our Level 2 Childcare course and Level 2 Safeguarding course. We’ve chosen the course combination and units to help improve your chances of getting a job at a primary school, nursery, play centre and other settings working with children.

Please search the National Careers Services for a Level 2 Diploma in Childcare if you require a qualification that’s Government approved for Level 2 staff child ratios. Our Early Years Practitioner course is an online knowledge based course ideal for progression onto a Level 2 Diploma.
