Early educators:
Study for free

Hallmark Education and the Suffolk Childcare Agency (SCA) have teamed up to offer SCA members and associates the chance to access a range of NCFE CACHE-accredited qualifications free of charge (subject to meeting the funding eligibility criteria below). This is a fantastic opportunity to promote the continuing professional development of yourself and/or your colleagues and wider contacts.

We appreciate that those who work in early years have extremely busy work schedules, so all the courses are offered on a flexible, distance learning basis. Therefore, there’s no need to attend college or face-to-face classes. Learners will be sent all the course materials they need, and they’ll be able to study in the comfort of their own homes.

All the qualifications are at level 2 and are designed to raise your awareness of key issues. All are OFQUAL-regulated and therefore nationally recognised.

Although all the courses are fairly short, some are longer than others, so we’ve provided an indication of the time that is usually given to complete each one (we appreciate that some learners may require less time, others may need more). The courses that are currently available are listed below and you can click on the links to learn more about each one:
