SALE 25% off
  • Accreditation by Stonebridge Associated Colleges
  • 10 units

This is a bespoke course that has been designed to promote an understanding of 6-12year olds and their specific needs. It is unique in its endeavours as it captures all the elements of child development, psychology and attachments within the psychosocial  development of middle childhood and offers candidates a greater understanding of the complex  developments that are present at this stage, and how best to address them.

Middle Years is more than a group of learning and teaching strategies, rather, middle years education provides a framework that connects students needs i.e., resilience, relationships, increasing responsibility, academic vigour and relevance in learning in a strategic way that promotes continued student engagement, achievement, and growth.  The term “middle years” describes children at the end of primary school (6yrs) and beginning of secondary school (12yrs).  They experience heightened emotions, are progressively seeking greater independence, and develop their individual identities and value systems.  Intellectually they have a growing capacity for reflective and abstract thinking and begin to make decisions about adult roles.

The main Aims and Objectives of the course are to show you have an understanding of the Middle Years through an increased self awareness resulting from the training.  This will enable you to build on relationships with children and young people through your interpersonal skills enhancing communication and understanding by reflection of your personal development.

This is a fantastic course for anyone wishing to start a career in the health and social care industry around middle childhood, i.e. Foster Carers, Parenting Practitioners, Teaching Assistants, Teachers, Social Workers, Social Work Assistants, School Nurse, Child Care and Youth Workers, in fact anyone wishing to pursue a career working with this age group.  It is also an exceptional tool for existing workers who require a greater understanding of middle childhood.

You will gain a greater knowledge and understanding of the role and development that is relevant to middle childhood, and the legislative context that child carers operate within.

Obtain an understanding of the personal and interpersonal skill needed at this level

Explore the transitions in education, independence, self confidence, and personal-responsibility of the middle-years age group.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
