Unit 1: Know the main stages of child and young person’s development

This unit will begin to address learning outcome 1 (stated above). This learning outcome will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies. In this unit you will explore the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years and how the different areas of development can affect one another.

Unit 2: Understand the kinds of influences that affect children and young person’s development

This unit will focus on learning outcome 2 (stated above). This learning outcome will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies. In this unit you will research the different influences that affect children and young people’s development including their background, health and the environment in which they live.

Unit 3: Understand how to support children and young person’s development

This unit will focus on learning outcome 3 and 4 (stated above). These learning outcomes will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies. In this unit you will be introduced to the idea of using observations on children and young people to support their development. You will plan activities for children and young people that will support their holistic development and encourage positive behaviour.

Unit 4: Understand the potential effects of transitions on children and young person’s development

This unit will focus on achieving learning outcome 5 (stated above). To guide your studies, this part of the learning outcome will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies.
