Childcare support for working families (NEW)

Level: Basic

This half-day course is for people working in childcare and early years, who want to maximise incomes for working families and help them to avoid common benefit problems.

It concentrates on who can get help with the costs of childcare through the social security system, and how this interacts with other sources of support. No previous knowledge of benefits is required.

It will help you to:

• Identify who can still get childcare support through tax credits
• Understand how help with childcare is changing under universal credit
• Understand some of the pitfalls and how to avoid them

This course is aimed at those with no or limited knowledge of benefits.

“Will help me give basic advice to parents.” 

“Very clear, well-structured.”
