Early years and playwork training at level 2

Training for Level 2 courses in Early Years and Playwork.

Level 2 qualifications are for people working in early years registered settings or settings on the Childcare Register working under supervision.

Overseas qualifications

In order to confirm whether staff with qualifications from overseas can be counted in the level 2 or level 3 ratio’s they will need to contact UK Naric to get a Statement of Comparability for the Early Years Sector (SOCEYS).

To count in the ratios at level 3 staff with qualifications from overseas must also hold qualifications which are comparable to GCSE English and maths at grade C or above.
