Hello and advice please! (staff qualification and compliance issue


Recommended Posts



I have used the forum in the past and found it invaluable. For some reason subscription slipped!


However, when recently battling through compliance issues, thought the forum would again be a good place to find support.


My problem!


In our Early Years (Kindergarten and Reception) department we currently have one class teacher and four level 3 practitioners. Two of the level 3's have qualifications that relate to 'education' and not specifically Early Years. is this a problem. Are we compliant?


If it is a problem, is it sufficient for us to build their portfolio of Early Years training with specific course such as an observation and assessment course etc.....?


My fingers are crossed!

Welcome back to the forum :1b


For some reason I can't add a link but if you google 'early years qualification checker' it does now list Teaching Assistant qualifications as being relevant - I thought a few years ago we were told they weren't ?! anyway it's worth checking to see if there are any gaps that some CPD would fill.

Hi there kybert welcome back to the forum.

are you in an independent school at all? If so I would say it depends on if that's one class or two? If it's one class with less than 30 children then you are well covered with one teacher and at least one other level 3 person.

If its separate classes it's different.


Have a look in the EYFS framework



It's all in there but if you still can't work it out pop back with a little more info about the numbers.
