The Level 3 Award in Childcare and Education Childcare is designed for aspiring individuals and those already employed as childcare workers to acquire the skills and knowledge of what it takes to work with children.  Childcare is a blooming and booming industry in the current, modern world. With both parents setting out to establish a career for themselves, the childcare industry has seen a dramatic increase in demand in the past few years.
