The first bit of that is easy to answer: Page 31 of the Statutory Framework says

 

"In registered settings other than childminding settings, all supervisors and managers must hold a full and relevant level 3 qualification (as defined by the Children’s Workforce Development Council (CWDC)) and half of all other staff must hold a full and relevant level 2 qualification (as defined by CWDC)."

 

I shall look to see where it mentions the deputy needing a level 3 - but given that the deputy might be in a position to manage or supervise, perhaps you could assume the deputy needs a level 3 too. But I'm sure it says it somewhere...

I think you can find this in the statutory framework for the eyfs-

" Specific legal requirements

all supervisors and managers must hold a full and relevant level 3 (as defined by the children's workforce development council and half of all other staff must hold a full and relevant level 2"

 

about page 31

EYFS states: In registered settings other than childminding settings, all supervisors and managers must hold a full and relevant level 3 qualification (as defined by the Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC)) and half of all other staff must hold a full and relevant level 2 qualification (as defined by CWDC).

 

and cant find it but something along the lines of in absence of supervisor a named deputy to take charge - which would mean they have to be level 3 as well.... :o

No, you're right - I can't find it either. So really its a matter of interpretating what is written in the way I described earlier - if the deputy is able to be left in charge then they are acting as manager/supervisor and therefore needs a level 3.

I think you need the deputy to be a level 3 so when the manager/supervisor is out the building the child/adult ratio are with in the statatory requirements.
