Introducing the Children's Activities Leader NVQ Level 2

Worth up to £2000 per employee

The first recognised qualification for all children's activities teaching professionals

No cost as fully funded with possible further financial incentives for your organisation

The ICON Children’s Activities Leader programme has been custom built by ICON specifically for CAA members.  This programme draws on government funding and clever use of accredited training to create a 100% funded learning programme for staff employed by members of the CAA.

ICON will take your staff (new or existing) on a year long journey seeing them predominately at your workplace to minimise impact of travel upon your business.  ICON appreciate you are all subject experts so rather than focus on specific activities the course focuses on getting the fundamentals of planning, executing and reviewing sessions right.

Included within the journey are:

NVQ Certificate in Activity Leadership

Level 2 Diploma, including:

  • Planning & instructing
  • Safeguarding and protecting Children and young people
  • Customer Care
  • Employment Awareness
Following consultation with Dr Amanda Gummer PhD, the route has been mapped to the CAA Accreditation and directly supports the Programme & Delivery modules by supporting the quality of teaching.
