Qualifications FinderThe Qualifications List for Those Delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage
The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage sets out the requirements for staff/child ratios in settings delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage and the qualification levels that practitioners must hold. It is the role of the Teaching Agency to define the 'full and relevant' qualifications that practitioners included in the specified ratios must hold.
The Early Years Qualifications list is a searchable tool designed to help those delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage to identify which qualifications are considered full and relevant. It also lists qualifications that, together with accredited additional learning, could enable a practitioner’s package of accredited learning to be viewed as 'full and relevant'.
