Level 4 Children, Young People and Families Practitioner
Apprentices on the CYP and Families Manager Apprenticeship will learn to demonstrate a passion to care for children, young people and their families. They will be able to assess complex needs, implement interventions and work alongside other professionals with the goal of delivering improved outcomes.
The Skills Network offers freely individualised learning to each Apprentice and heavily involves the employer with all curriculum scoping to ensure progress is meaningful.
Prior attainment is carefully considered from the start to ensure time on programme within employment is maximised and strong IAG ensures that the Apprentice understands the context of their learning and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey.
In addition, the curriculum scoping exercise provides an opportunity to review prior learning and completed qualifications, with the aim of personalising Apprenticeships to support and enhance your business, and therefore your Apprentices’ progress and progression.
Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:
- Undertake the Disclosure and Barring Service process and provide the result
- It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in math and English (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their apprenticeship training. For those apprentices who are yet to achieve a level 2 in English and math will have the opportunity to complete these qualifications during their apprenticeship. However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their end-point assessment.
During the duration of the apprenticeship your staff will develop a range of new knowledge, skills and behaviours which will add significant value to each apprentices overall learning, progress and development. Examples include:
- Communication that enables the voice of the child, young person or family members to be heard
- The safeguarding requirements contained within mandatory local safeguarding training or nationally accredited equivalent
- Models for monitoring changes in a child, young person or family member’s wellbeing
- Actively promotes respect, equality, diversity and inclusion
- Appropriately challenges and/or offers alternative perspectives with the children, young person or family
- Identifies and manages evidence-based approaches and evaluates their effectiveness
