Child Development

Child Development is only studied at GCSE but has been very popular over a number of years.  It can lead to a number of careers such as nursery nurse, nanny, early years teaching, child psychologist, nursing and midwifery.

Students follow the AQA syllabus which covers a wide range of topics including family planning, pregnancy, birth, care of a baby, care of small children and how a child develops between birth and five years.
