Today we welcomed our new cohort of CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Playwork Apprentices to their first group session in Gorseinon!
This qualification caters for those wanting to take on more of a management role as well as Playworkers who have been working in the sector for many years. This enthusiastic cohort of new Apprentices are keen to improve or refresh their knowledge and gain skills.
There are many benefits to undertaking an Apprenticeship. As stated by one new learner: “It’s based locally, with not much travel, with set and convenient times and the assessor comes to you, which works best for busy clubs!” With Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs, the Apprentices will have a dedicated trainer and assessor, weekly sessions with the trainer, course materials and latest Playwork theories and monthly visits at the workplace. And, our achievement rate for apprentices is 86%, which is above the national benchmark.
Playworkers gaining this qualification will meet the qualifications specified within the Skills Active List of Required Qualifications to work within the Playwork Sector in Wales as referred to within the National Minimum Standards for Regulated Childcare for children up the age of 12 years.
