Diploma and Certificate for the Children and Young People's Workforce (CYPW)

The CYPW level 3 diploma is no longer available and has now been replaced by the Early Years Educator Diploma (EYE) qualification

The CYPW level 2 certificate is suitable for those working in a supervised supporting role as an assistant in childcare setting such as a pre-school, nursery or creche or as a childminder's assistant.
