Take 5 for Play
Take 5 for Play


'Take 5 for Play' is an introductory course in play and Playwork that is suitable for anyone working with children and young people from 4 to 16 years.

This course is being phased out to be replaced with the newly written 'Play-Way'. Final Take 5 course bookings will be accepted until Sept 2018.

Take 5 for Play would provide essential knowledge in children and their play for volunteers and seasonal Playwork staff, as well as lunchtime supervisors, extended schools staff and other childcare workers.

Take 5 for Play training course previously endorsed by SkillsActive is mapped to the National Occupational Standards at Level 2. It is designed as an introduction to playwork and a stepping stone to continue on to a level 2 qualification and further. There is no requirement to renew this training certificate each year.

"Really enjoyed the hands on element of the course"
