Hi

We have been interviewing and our director told someone at an interview that she would get paid the same as an unqualified member of staff as she only has Level 2 & 3 in Health & Social Care.

Im sure they can be counted as a level 3 and be paid the same as other level 3s in our setting?

 

I would be very grateful if anyone knows or could link me to somewhere so i can show my director.

My niece has been told by her school teacher and the training company to do health and social care level 2 as she wants to work with young children in like a nursery type setting!!! I've screamed NO it's not relevant qualification and told her to get her teacher to ring me I'm furious a training company is still aelling this as a relevant qualification. Then candidates are shocked when I say they are qualified.

Rant over lol x

When I last used the Job Centre to advertise a role (big mistake, never to be repeated!) they kept sending me people with Health & Social care qualification and no Childcare qualifications - I must have rang them at least 3/4 times and they kept ignoring me!

Yes!!!!! We only ever did that once...never again!

All we got were people that obviously didn't want the job- but I'm guessing had to fill the criteria of 'activity seeking employment'

(although I did feel like offering the job to one in particular- just to call his bluff xD - the job was advertised as 8.15 - 3.45 and included a lot of physical work- setting up/down. He told me he could only work 10-2.. and couldn't do any lifting)

The job centre sent us several people without childcare OR H & S care - but several who listed 'being a parent' or 'babysitting' as their childcare experience - despite the advert clearly stating that a level 3 or equivalent in childcare was an essential requirement of the post. No more job centre for us!
