Qualifications for the children and young people's workforce

More options from January 2012

CWDC is pleased to announce that the much awaited Level 3 foster care units will be available within the optional unit bank of the Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce from January 2012.

CACHE, City & Guilds and Edexcel are adding the three new units with effect from January 2012.  Other Awarding Organisations may add these later in the year.  If you are interested in taking these units (as part of the L3 Diploma or as CPD units), please check with your local training provider whether they will be delivering them.

In addition to the foster care units, City & Guilds will also be offering the new Level 3 "Working within a Social Pedagogic Framework with Children and Young People" unit as an optional unit in the L3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce from January 2012.

The four new units can be viewed here:
