To remove the barrier of high cost of CPD for our members, we offer free- of charge CPD training, events, and e-learning modules which can be adapted to align with a number of Target Jobs’ ‘top ten skills that will get you a job when you graduate’
We also offer e-learning, sector news updates, video based resources articles and a podcast, Pod-CACHE to help to provide you with all you require to ‘cut through the noise’, manage ambiguity, and gain resilience whilst working in the Education; Health; or Care sectors.
This is something our members have been quick to note as a major benefit of signing up to work with CACHE Alumni.
Jennifer’s early years cohort use CACHE Alumni to support them with their learning and development, to prepare them for their placements and entering the workplace. Since September 2020, the early years department have delivered CACHE qualifications for Childcare and Education ranging from Level 1 to Level 4.
Jennifer said that: “I qualified as an Early Years Practitioner when I was 18 years old!... The information, articles and CPD opportunities [from CACHE Alumni] are excellent in raising awareness and keeping knowledge up to date! The podcasts are extremely beneficial for me as I can hear professional’s perspectives on changes across early years sector. This enables me to share information with learners when delivering qualifications.”
“It is an excellent resource! I have shared CACHE Alumni information with employers across Bolton, who provide our learners with placements, to share with their own workforce. It certainly helps to underpin some professional development units across the CACHE qualifications. Having CACHE Alumni for learners to register on lets me know their learning can continue after their learning journey at the college.”
Our support with skills development and analysis through individual member CPD logs and careers advice will enable you to develop your reflective analytical skills and IT skills as you work with your dedicated AI Careers tool and gain feedback/ support.
Chloe Singleton and Freya Stott, who are currently studying the CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education (Early Years Educator) at Bolton College told us that CACHE Alumni’s tools have been a major benefit during their studies.
Chloe intends to use her CACHE Qualifications to go to university to study psychology as “I would like to enter the mental health sector to be able to influence young people to make better decisions.” Meanwhile, Freya aims to go to university to “study primary school teaching and learn more about special needs as I would like to eventually work in that sector.” Both said that
“CACHE Alumni is beneficial to us as we are able to keep track of CPD. We can carry out different types of CPD and find out the different ways to do so. It also helps us to keep track of everything that is happening with the EYFS and be informed if anything is changing. We think this benefit us the most as it means we will never be behind on our knowledge of the EYFS.”
Chloe said “We would recommend CACHE Alumni to other professionals in this area because we think they will be able to benefit from this and find easy ways to keep track of their progress and everything they need to know to develop in this profession.”
