A survey has been launched to gather information on the effects that the GCSE requirements for Level 3 qualifications are having on recruitment.
The Trailblazer group, who are responsible for developing the new apprenticeship framework, are currently attempting to gain as much information from current employers on the impact these regulations are having on their staff retention and requirement.
The requirements insist that anyone doing the Early Years Educator (EYE) qualification must also hold GCSEs in English and maths at grade A-C.
Please complete the short survey (the link is provided at the bottom) to provide the Trailblazer group with your views on the situation; all results will be kept anonymous unless you choose otherwise.
Closing date: December 11th, 2015.
