Change to qualifications

There is now a new accreditation framework for Early Years, Childcare and Playwork qualifications called the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF).

Early Years and Playwork qualifications can be delivered in a number of ways – full time or part time at college (possibly one day a week) or work based. Entry level courses are for one session a week for a few weeks. For further details go to the Department of Education website.
