The requirements have been agreed in conjunction with Social Care Wales and SkillsActive, the sector skills councils covering the childcare and play sectors in Wales. Greater detail is available on the Social Care Wales List of Required Qualifications to work within early years and childcare in Wales and the SkillsActive List of Required Qualifications to work within the Playwork Sector in Wales.
