To count in the ratios at level 3, staff holding an Early Years Educator qualification MUST also have achieved GCSEs in English and maths at grade C or above.

The following qualifications have been agreed as acceptable equivalencies to GCSEs in English and Maths at Grade C or above:

  •  UK recognised predecessor qualifications: ‘O’ level A – C or CSE Grade 1
  •  Recognised Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh equivalents
  •  AS and A/2 levels
  •  Accredited GCSEs which count towards the English Baccalaureate
  •  International qualifications defined by UK NARIC as meeting GCSE A*- C.

The requirement for Early Years Educator qualifications and GCSEs in English and maths will not be applied retrospectively. Staff and learners who hold or are working towards existing full and relevant qualifications will still be able to practice and will not need GCSEs in English and maths at Grade C or above.
