This course is designed to equip learners with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to build trusting relationships with children; young people and their families; provide a safe and secure environment; and meet the complex needs of children and young people living in residential childcare.

Learners will need to complete a level 3 diploma in residential childcare as part of their level 4 programme, alongside development of the required KSBs.

My trainer was very helpful, particularly with topics I struggled with. I am really proud of what I have achieved.
