CACHE Early Years Educator Level 3

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi, I have submitted and passed my first assignment, just a few questions, obviously I know I need to prove my work by doing the record sheets and am I correct that this is sent at the end of the course?
Also What needs to be in my final portfolio? I would hate to get too far into it and realise that I don't have what I need in there!?
Thank you
Dani

Each time you receive if you have passed your assignment, then you proceed to the second one. You have to pass the first and take the second, etc. You are right about your second question, but they never reply to that... You can email or call them.

No, but I know the way they work with all. I am a Psychology Advanced Diploma Student, but we all have the same query about qualifications after the Course! All colleges have a clear statement and I am worried, too, about that, Danielle. Exams are thorough, I think we deserve something more. Are we accredited??? A question to be answered...

I called the college today and they said I failed assignment 1 and have to resubmit some of it! I should get feedback soon I am just really gutted as I worked hard and can't imagine what I did wrong as it just seemed straightforward. :(

Just call them or ask for your "failed" assignment. You have the right and they have to tell you!

Caroline, you are not kid, are you? Sometimes we cry for others' mistakes... Even if you pass all your exams, will you be accredited? I have already posted it as a problem, but you see, there is no reply!

WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS, NOT ROBOTS! IF WE DIDN'T FAIL, WE WOULD BE GODS AND WE DON'T WANT THAT..., DO WE? I think that through studying you will see that...

I dont agree with you Marina! We are all individuals and release emotions differently, some people cry, some drink, some smoke etc. It doesn't make her a kid if she cries. What has being accredited got to do with anything? How do you know she's not doing it for personal knowledge? I started this course only so I can be the best parent to my one year old daughter and my future kids. No one wants to fail and if you equip yourself with the right resources/information and study hard, then there is no reason to fail! FACT

First of all, I wrote it friendly and tenderly, not to insult her. Writing is not like talking with someone, so maybe you did not understand the way I wrote it. Knowledge is the best guide in my opinion. I know that if you study hard, you expect the best result, that's why my first answer was to contact them again. It is in their duties to say what her mistakes were. Maybe something went wrong with them, they did not understand well, etc. As you can read, sometimes we cry for others' mistakes..., this means something... Maybe she is not the one having made the mistakes! Please, read it well.

Dont cry, you have been given a second chance to re-submit! So its not all over! If you need any help or advise on any of the questions just let me know. Also if you are writing your answers based on the book they provided, you will likely fail, as I realised that the book on touches on the subject and doesnt expand on it. My suggestion would be to research and use other resources as well as the book when completing your answers.

Hi Dani...I hope you already have the answer to your question if not.."All evidence to support the completion of portfolio activities needs to be submitted once you have completed all of the written assignments.This will form the contents of final assignment"Now my question is:I am at the first assignment and stuck at question 6:What do I have to do? Do I need to answer the question like all the rest or do I need to complete the portfolio with the practical activity based on placement setting?
Thanks,M
