Employee Rights and Responsibilities Workbook for Children’s Care, Learning and Development

Introducing the Employee Rights and Responsibilities Workbook for Children’s Care, Learning and Development Welcome to the Children’s Care, Learning and Development (CCLD) Apprentice’s Employment Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) Workbook. This workbook forms part of your Apprenticeship; it covers important aspects of your work, and helps you understand your most important rights and responsibilities as a person employed in Children’s Care, Learning and Development.

The purpose of ERR
There are many laws that protect us at work and ensure that we are treated fairly by an employer. At the same time, everyone who works has to take care that they behave well in work, looking out for their own and other people’s safety, and are reliable and trustworthy. Because this is so important, all Apprentices, whatever job they are doing, have an element of Employee Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) study during their Modern Apprenticeship.

• Or you may cover the learning outcome in other ways through work that you do towards your Diploma in Children’s Care Learning and Development and the completion of your Apprenticeship Framework in Children’s Care Learning and Development. There are a number of activities for you to complete to show that you have understood the programme and these are marked clearly. You will also find information and advice on further information, on reading for you to do using the internet. When you have completed all the learning outcomes your assessor will sign the Evidence Record Form at the end of your workbook. This is proof that you have completed the programme to the required standards and will then be sent off at the end of your Apprenticeship with your other certificates (your Diploma in CCLD) so that you can receive your Apprenticeship Certificate. We are sure you will find the information in this workbook useful and hope that you find the content and activities interesting....
