Child Psychology Skills

About the Child Psychology Skills Certificate

This course has been developed for individuals who wish to assist in the child development process. Regardless of whether they wish to utilise their knowledge at home or in the workplace, the Child Psychology Skills course will provide learners with the knowledge they need to succeed. What’s more is that it can be studied from the comfort of the student’s own home.

When studying this child psychology course online, students will need to complete a number separate modules. These engaging and informative units will educate learners about everything from cognitive and moral development to aggression and emotions in early childhood. Altogether the programme should take around 110 hours to complete; although we encourage students to move at their own pace.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at those who wish to work with children and adolescents; those who already work with young people; or those who have children of their own. This distance learning course could provide a basis for a new career or help people develop in their current profession.

You do not need any prior qualifications to enrol on this course. All you need is access to the internet and a computer, the motivation to embark on home study and a genuine desire to support children and young people during the development process.

What happens after the course?

If you enjoy studying this course, you may decide to embark on further related home learning experiences. If you want to become a child psychologist, then you will need to attend university and complete undergraduate and a masters child psychology courses.

If you’d prefer to go straight into employment, this course will certainly stand you ahead of the competition. There are plenty of careers which require knowledge of child psychology and development. These include but are not limited to:

  • Teaching assistant
  • Nursery nurse
  • Youth worker
