Level 3 Units

The diagram  shows the make up of the units for the Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce.

The diploma shares units with other sector skills councils' qualifications, e.g. the TDA Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualifications, and has three shared mandatory units that appear in other Level 3 qualifications across the children and young people and adult social care workforce, e.g. Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care.

There are seven children and young people workforce core units which are undertaken by all three pathways and reflect the knowledge and skills of the common core. There are then mandatory units for each of the pathways.

The option unit allowance is where practitioners undertake units that reflect their specialisms, for example supporting disabled children and young people, caseload management and supporting children and young people with mental health needs.
