Childminding qualifications and preschool work


Recommended Posts

Hi I am currently recruiting for a Level 2 practitioner and have had someone apply who has a childminding qualification, it's an 

NCFE CACHE level 3 in preparing to work in home based childcare (2016). I have checked on the government checker and can't for the life of me figure out if she can be counted in the ratios in our setting. 

Can anybody help?

Yes it is actually a short course/module.

We have a staff member with it, but she did it when she wanted to get back into childcare after having a few years off. She was already L3 but had qualified originally it the 90s and hadn't worked in childcare for 7 years.

But don't forget as long as you met the required 'qualifications' element of the EYFS you can count unqualified in ratios.
