Overview

We are seeking views to amend the level 2 literacy and numeracy qualification requirements for staff with a level 3 Early Years Educator qualification.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation is an opportunity to better understand what knowledge, skills and appropriate qualifications in mathematics and English are required to perform an effective level 3 role. 

It also seeks to consider what literacy and numeracy qualification requirements can put level 3 staff in the best position to progress in their careers.

We are currently analysing responses.

The results of the consultation and the Department's response will be published on GOV.UK in winter 2016/17.
