Course Description

Child Psychology (QQI Level 6)

The Open College

The aim of this QQI Child Psychology Level 6 course is to provide the learner with the necessary theoretical knowledge relating to child psychology, as well as an understanding of how that theoretical knowledge is relevant in applied contexts as reflected, for example, in best educational practice being tied to the cognitive level of the child. Thus, until a requisite developmental level has been achieved, certain educational goals, such as basic mathematics, may not be obtainable.

Furthermore, the child’s social and emotional development shall also be explored. By the end of the course the learner will have a broad understanding of child psychology and how it forms a foundation for adult psychology and lifespan development. The course content will thus be applicable to any job role where children and their care is a focus, and where child development and growth is fostered with an aim towards wider societal goals.
