Share your views on the new Level 2 qualification

People meeting over coffeeBy Caroline Graham

The Pre-school Learning Alliance is hosting a meeting for early years employers to share their views on the proposed new criteria for early years assistant Level 2 qualifications.

The Department for Education launched a 12-week public consultation on 7 December 2017, asking the sector for its views on the proposed Early Education and Childcare Workforce – Level 2 qualification and its suitability for qualifications in early education and childcare.
