This full-colour, candidate handbook retains all the popular features which made the original edition so successful, including the 'Are you for assessment?' section at the end of each element. It covers all six mandatory and all four optional units of the CCLD NVQ Level 2 qualification, including Unit 210 for practitioners interested in playwork.

It now includes specially-commissioned, full-colour photographs, some of which are used to illustrate the main stages of physical development. It contains material specifically written to cover children's development for the 0-16 age range.

The content has been carefully revised in conjunction with "City and Guilds" to follow the ethos of the new qualification and ensure full coverage of the new 2005 specifications. It includes a 'Reflective Practice' feature to encourage self-review and Practical Examples to support candidates. It is endorsed by "City and Guilds" and suitable for all awarding body NVQ specifications.
