Early Years Workforce Development
A career in childcare is very rewarding. We constantly strive to have a sufficient level of highly trained, competent childcare workforce. The skills that childcare staff possess and the quality of their work makes a huge difference to the learning and developmental experiences of the children they work with. Through research we know that good quality childcare, especially in a child’s early years, has a positive impact.
The Caerphilly Early Years Workforce Development Service offers advice, guidance and financial support on childcare training opportunities, and careers into the childcare sector.
The training includes:
- Statutory and regulatory training
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
- National Qualifications
Early years and childcare qualifications
We offer support to individuals wishing to access some early years and childcare qualifications in accordance with the Care Council for Wales ' List of Required Qualifications to work within the Early Years and Childcare Sector in Wales' (terms and conditions apply).
We also offer a subsidised 'Regulatory' and 'Continuing Professional Development (CPD)' training programme for those currently working in childcare within Caerphilly county borough.
