Quick Guide to Early Years Qualifications
Our team is highly qualified and dedicated to continuing professional development, with much of our team working towards further qualifications. Here’s a very quick guide to Childcare Qualifications which are usually referred to as Levels 1-6, though there are lots of other relevant qualifications out there…
- Level 1 – An optional qualification and an introduction to childcare and early years settings generally.
- Level 2 – Assistant Under Supervision
Assistants are usually our apprentices, who are working at nursery whilst studying for (or as a precursor to) their Level 3. Level 2 Assistants work in each room under the supervision of a team member qualified to level 3 or above.
- Level 3 – Nursery Practitioner – Supervisory Roles
Most of our team are qualified to level 3 or above. Level 3 Practitioners supervise the practice of Level 2 Assistants and lead on activities in each room.
- Level 4 & 5 – Supervisory and Leading Roles
At Level 4, practitioners have completed their Early Years Foundation Degree and can take on Management responsibility.
- Level 6 – Early Years Teacher
Level 6 practitioners have completed a BA Hons Degree and are classed as an Early Years Teacher.
