Have a look at our Career Progression map to see where this qualification could take you.

The Level 3 qualification is the same level as a HNC in Childhood Practice, so after completion you may be able to move on to Level 4, or apply to College or University.

The SVQs are funded by Skills Development Scotland under the Modern Apprentice scheme. Regardless of your age the qualification will be either partly or fully funded.
