The Level 2 Certificate in Playwork: Principles into Practice (P3) qualification will prepare playworkers for working in year-round playwork settings and builds on the knowledge gained in the Level 2 Award in Playwork Practice (L2APP). Please note that completing L2APP is an entry requirement to be accepted onto the Level 2 P3 Certificate.

The qualification meets the requirements for staff working in playwork settings that are registered with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW).

The Level 2 Certificate P3 consists of five units:

  • Reflection and continuing professional development
  • Play and development
  • Practical playwork skills
  • Safeguarding in a playwork setting
  • Working with others
     

These units are in addition to the two learners will have completed during L2APP.

Practical playwork skills is a ground-breaking unit that includes fire lighting and simple structure building skills.

The Level 2 P3 Certificate is delivered over six days with additional time for learners to complete asssessment and practice hours.
