Childcare Level 3

CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce (Early Years Educator) (QCF)

The Level 3 Early Years Educator (EYE) has replaced the Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (CYPW) qualification.

This course is right for you if you are already supervising members of staff or working in a face to face role with children and if you want to expand your current underpinning knowledge from level 2.

This qualification qualifies you to work with children aged 0-5 and gives you the knowledge of children aged 0-7.  If you are interested in working in a school for example please take a look at our Teaching & Learning courses.

Your assessor will visit you in the workplace to plan with you, carry out observations, question you on knowledge evidence and generally support you through your course.

There will be a taught session at the college every month that all learners are encouraged to attend as this is an opportunity for us to support you in understanding each task, to gain ideas and to socialise with others on the same course.

You should expect to take approximately 12 – 15 months to complete this Childcare course. Completion can be achieved quicker depending on time, skills and commitment.

An enhanced DBS (CRB) check will be required at the start of the course.


It is a requirement in the EYFS 2017 for staff to either hold GCSE’s at grade C or above or functional skills level 2 in English and Maths to be included in Early Years ratio’s at level 3 when qualified with the Early Years Educator level 3 qualification.


Funding Options


We have Apprenticeships available for all ages!

The Advanced Apprenticeship framework consists of CACHE level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce; 12 hours First Aid, Employment Rights and Responsibilities unit & Functional Skills English, Maths & ICT Level 2 (if you do not already hold the acceptable equivalents). You will need to be employed for a minimum of 16 hours a week.


Private Funding

To fund the course privately the course costs £2882.

Those aged 19 and over may to able to access the Learning Loan.

This is available for anyone over 19 wishing to do a level 3, 4  or 5 qualification.  It doesn’t take into account your household income, and it doesn’t affect your credit rating.  It covers the cost of the course and you wouldn’t need to start paying it back until you earn £25,000.  If you don’t earn that amount then you don’t pay anything and after 30 years the balance is wiped clean.

Those choosing this route would need to work a childcare setting a minimum of 12 hours a week.
