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 Certificate and a Level 3 Diploma qualification. P3 can be delivered in English or in Welsh.
P3 - Level 2 and 3 qualifications
Our new suite of playwork qualifications meet the qualification requirements for registered playwork settings in Wales.
The qualifications have been designed to provide a proportionate, effective and coherent progression route for playworkers.
- The Agored Cymru Level 2 Award in Playwork Practice (L2APP) provides a broad introduction to playwork and is the entry requirement to progress on to the other qualifications in the suite.
- The Agored Cymru Level 2 Certificate Playwork: Principles into Practice has been designed to meet the requirements of face to face playworkers based on sector feedback.
- The Agored Cymru Level 3 Diploma Playwork: Principles into Practice is the progression from the Level 2 Certificate and is aimed at playwork managers and supervisors. It includes content on community development, risk management, legislation and working with families.
The new Agored Cymru P3 qualifications have been developed in partnership with Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales. They replace our previous Scottish Qualifications Authority P3 qualifications.
