I studied this (national extended certificate). Be prepared for LOADS of coursework. And they also have exam units as well. There is quite a bit on developing and things about the life stages. Such as puberty, menopause, birth. etc. You also learn about life events and how they affect and impact people. As well as things such as Physical, intellectual, emotional and social (PIES) development. The coursework usually includes a lot of research (if you want a high grade). They give you case studies and scenarios and you research into them. For a distinction you need to be familiar with Harvard referencing and explain in detail linking to the exam stuff you learn. X
