Level 3 manager


Recommended Posts

A lot of places would ask for the experience of working as a manager for two years - i suppose it depends on the experience of the person - have they completed any of the responsibilities / roles of the lead?

lots of jobs done by a lead (not that the staff think we do anything lol) .

In group settings, the manager must hold at least a full and relevant level 3 qualification and at least half of all other staff must hold at least a full and relevant evel 2 qualification. The manager should have at least two years’ experience of
working in an early years setting, or have at least two years’ other suitable


The provider must ensure there is a named deputy who, in their

judgement, is capable and qualified to take charge in the manager’s absence.

How would you have 2 years experience as a manager if no one ever gave you a managers job because you don't already have 2 years experience as a manager ;p

It doesn't say 2 years as a manager, just 2 years early years experience,like it doesn't say post qualification , by doing the qualification you are getting the experience.. but it may not take 2 years to get it.. not very clear..


Think it would depend on the individual, the type of experience they have in a setting etc.. and take the decision for that person.
