Course description

Level 3 Understanding the Middle Years

Prior study is not a prerequisite – you just need a passion for the subject matter!

Our brand-new Understanding the Middle Years manual is already blazing the way in this neglected area of child development, which is so desperately needed to create positivity and optimism amongst the adults of tomorrow. Children have never had so many difficult choices and daunting expectations. Perfection, it seems, is all around them but never within. Increased media pressure to be a certain shape and size, to participate in an ever-increasing range of activities where peer pressure is enormous, and to wear the latest clothes and fashion items, or own the latest smart phone or gadget simply piles on the pressure.

Having a greater understanding of the issues, and empathy with the individuals, is what sets this study pack apart. It is designed to help you appreciate how these stresses affect children and young adults, and give you the insight you need to support them through what for many is perhaps the toughest period in their lives.

Suitability - Who should attend?

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

For more information about admission requirements, please contact the provider.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

When you have successfully completed your studies you will receive a certificate of achievement from Focus Awards.

This is a non-regulated qualification which is endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP scheme. They are not nationally recognised qualifications; on successful completion of your studies you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a certificate of completion from Distance Learning Plus.

Focus Awards is regulated as an Awarding Organisation by Ofqual, the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Non-regulated qualifications endorsed under the FQP scheme are ideal for professionals required to demonstrate commitment to CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and for those wanting to gain specialist knowledge of a particular subject.
