To meet the play needs of all children in Wales and all those who work where children play, Play Wales has developed a suite of qualifications known as Playwork: Principles into Practice or P3.
These consist of a level 2 and a level 3 playwork qualification. P3 can be delivered in English or in Welsh.
We are in the process of reviewing P3 during 2018 and early 2019. The new Playwork: Principles into Practice qualification is being developed as part of our partnership with Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales and Agored Cymru.
It is our intention that the Level 2 Award in Playwork Practice (L2APP) will form units of the Level 2 qualifications. This means that learners with this qualification will have already completed part of the full P3 qualification.
We will be consulting with the sector on the proposed units, size of the qualifications and final content during 2018.
The updated P3 will be available for first delivery from September 2019.
