NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Early Years Foundation Stage Practice

The NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Early Years Foundation Stage Practice has been accredited by the regulator for England and is part of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Its Qualification Accreditation Number is 500/5779/0.

This qualification was developed with support from the Children’s Workforce Development Council (CWDC), the previous Sector Skills Council for the Early Years workforce.

This qualification is made up of a set of learning outcomes and assessment criteria that describe what you need to be able to do, and the things you need to know, to achieve your qualification.

The qualification consists of the following mandatory units:

Unit 01 Context and principles for early years provision
Unit 02 Promoting learning and development in the early years
Unit 03 Promoting children’s welfare in the early years

To achieve the NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Early Years Foundation Stage Practice you must achieve all 3 mandatory units. You must provide evidence to show that you meet all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria defined in the units.

The work you produce (evidence) will be assessed by your Tutor/Assessor to make sure you’ve covered everything in sufficient detail. Your evidence could be made up of a combination of:

  • Written work or class notes
  • Products or samples of practical work
  • Case studies
  • Simulated activities or role play
  • Work placement diaries
  • Learning logs
  • Video or audio recordings
  • Other appropriate formats suggested by your Tutor/Assessor

When all your evidence is gathered together in a file or folder, this becomes your portfolio.

Our centre and Assessor have systems that we use to plan and monitor your assessment. These may be computer-based (eg using ‘e-portfolio’ software) or paper-based (using forms or checklists). These systems are designed to show how each piece of evidence meets which learning outcomes and assessment criteria.
