Course Title:Certificate in Child Development 0-5

Awarding Body:ABC Awards

Average Duration:200 hrs

Course Support:12 months expert tutor support

Course Description

The aims of this course are to allow students to develop an understanding of:

  • How child development is measured
  • Factors affecting physical development and growth
  • Understand children’s intellectual development
  • Understand how children develop communication skills
  • Understand children’s social and emotional development
  • Be aware of the signs and symptoms of various childhood illnesses

Development is not the same as growth. The two might happen side by side however: a baby is growing at the same time as it is developing.

Each child will have his or her own individual rate of progress: all children develop slightly differently and at different rates. Development is explained in different areas:

  • Physical
  • Cognitive or intellectual
  • Linguistic
  • Spiritual
  • Social and emotional

Within the programme there are a mixture of module types requiring a range of responses, including, descriptive answers or the completion of knowledge based activities.

The course is designed for study by distance learning at work or at home. Students receive a comprehensive and professionally printed course manual along with appropriate assignments that are designed to confirm your knowledge. Students are also provided with a study guide plus tutor support by mail and email. You can start at any time and plan your studies over a period of up to one year from the time of enrolment.
