Qualification

Hi All,

 

I am currently in the process of recruiting for a new nursery and I have had a super lady apply but I am not sure she has appropriate qualifications.. She is a registered children's nurse and has spent many years working in neonatal intensive care, paediatric intensive care and as a school nurse. Prior to her nursing career she did the first year of her childcare qualification at the local college but did not finish or qualify as she got a place on the nursing degree course.

 

I have tried the qualifications checker and it does not find her nursing qualification. I thought she would be a great fit in my baby room and I hope someone on the forum can help with this please.

 

Oh my goodness - first post and I have put it in the wrong section and don't know how to change it - please can someone tell me how to get it moved to nursery management issues.

Welcome to the Forum Toffeepops!

Don't worry about putting it in the wrong place - part of my job is tidying up and sweeping round! ;)

I don't think she's qualified either - I can see that she would be a great asset though - I'd employ her and get her trained, she can count in your ratios - but just not as qualified.

Let us know what you decide and what happens!

Thank you all for your responses.

 

It is a real shame as she would be ideal but this is a brand new nursery and we intend to expand our team as numbers increase so at the moment I can only really take staff I can include in the ratios. Who knows - maybe in the future........

 

Thanks for tidying up after me Rebecca.

Personally, I'd bite her hand off to have her on my team and train her up asap. She's not going to be unemployed for long..............she's going to know how to deal with upset children, upset parents...........and she already has a nursing degree?? It's a crazy system that suggests someone who is clearly so well qualified isn't able to work with nursery children. Mad. ( Not to mention her fabulous first aid qualifications)

Couldn't agree with you more narnia. Mature, experienced, caring and professional staff are Hard to come by ( believe me I have been looking for the last couple of years!)

Oh no. Now I'm dithering about it. I will speak to the owner and look into the cost as I would really like her. I know that as she has a degree she does not qualify for any funding - I checked that one out last week with a training provider.

 

I will keep you posted.
