The Peep Progression Pathway was developed by Peeple, a UK charity whose main purpose is to support parents/carers, babies and children to make the most of everyday learning opportunities. We do this by training practitioners to use our Peep Learning Together Programme with parents and children - valuing and building on what families already do, helping to improve life chances and narrow the gap in attainment.
The Peep Progression Pathway is successfully delivered with learners in a variety of settings, including:
When parents attend Peep sessions with their child, Peep practitioners work with them to build upon all of the learning and development opportunities which they already provide on a daily basis. The Peep Progression Pathway units offer formal recognition of parents’ learning about child development during the Peep sessions. The units are offered at SCQF levels 3, 4 and 5, to make them accessible to all parents. Each unit has 2 - 4 credits, focusing on one or several aspects of child development, covered in approximately 12 Peep sessions.
The Peep Progression Pathway - as its name suggests - often leads to parents and carers engaging in further training or qualifications, or new career opportunities:
“As a College we value prospective students who have completed the Peep Progression Pathway as it demonstrates a dedication to learning and enhances many skills learners require for college.” (Lecturer)
“Through the Peep Progression Pathway (‘Early literacy’ then ‘Early maths’ units) I was learning so many new things about child development that I realised that I would love to work with children… so I completed Core 3 in Maths, then applied for a job as a learning assistant, and I am now working in the nursery class in my local primary school. I absolutely love my job and wish that I had made the move sooner, but without going to the Peep group I would never have been confident enough to do it!”
Learners also report that they enjoyed creating their Peep Progression Pathway portfolio as a lasting keepsake about what they did with their child, and found the process beneficial in other ways:
