peep city & guilds accreditation for practitioners

The accreditation embeds Peep training into your work with families and enhances quality, so it is valuable even if you already have a higher level qualification.

cost
Included in the Peep Learning Together Programme Training price. 

process
You will be talked through the process by the trainers during the course, and be given online access to the portfolio and guidance. It is based on your Peep plan-do-review cycle. Your line manager or a colleague will observe one of your sessions with a follow-up discussion – guidance and a form are provided on the log-in Members Area. This observation doubles as quality assurance for your organisation and supervision support for you.

time commitment
It's manageable! It takes approximately 30 hours, including training course, planning and review time. You will have 9 months to complete, from your training date.

accreditation
When you have completed your portfolio you will gain level 3 City & Guilds accreditation for the unit 'Engage parents in their children's early learning'. This gives you 3 credits towards the 3599 'Work with Parents' award. It will contribute to your CV and CPD.

“I believe that this City & Guilds unit has enhanced my practice by being confident in the information I am giving parents and the strategies I use when working with parents. Consolidating my learning from Peep has been a valuable piece of evidence and it has laid the foundations for the Working with Parents Award and specifically using the Peep programme as part of our centre ethos. I feel it is very important that all the staff in our children’s centre who work with parents in an outreach role have a recognised qualification in Working with Parents. As centre manager I am leading by example.”
