3.29. Only those aged 17 or over may be included in ratios (and staff under 17 should be supervised at all times). Students on long term placements and volunteers (aged 17 or over) and staff working as apprentices in early education (aged 16 or over) may be included in the ratios if the provider is satisfied that they are competent and responsible. 

however you wouldn't be able to leave them alone and a member of staff with a PFA must be on duty with them

Oh yes! Silly me.

Is there a requirement that they are working alongside someone who hasn't got DBS through yet though? My understanding is that anyone without DBS cannot be alone with any child and so must always be working alongside a colleague. There must be a PFA (Let's go with that!!) on site at all times and all new L2 and L3 staff must have PFA to count in the ratio - I didn't think PFA and DBS were linked criteria?
