Level 2 Early Years Reminder
From 1st September 2019 learners who wish to count in the adult/child ratios in Early Years settings once they have achieved their qualification will need to be registered on our new NCFE CACHE Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner (603/3723/0). This is not applied retrospectively, it is only for new registrations, so any learners currently on programme on other Level 2 qualifications will still count in the ratios once certificated.
The Children and Young Peoples Apprenticeship Framework will be updated by Skills for Care (the issuing authority) on 1 September 2019 to add in the new Level 2 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner. This is an interim measure whilst the new Level 2 Early Years Practitioner Apprenticeship Standard is in development.
