Child Psychology Skills

About the Level 3 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 Level 3 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

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed learndirect to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
