Information

Early learning and childcare: induction resource

This induction resource provides new ELC employees with all the relevant information they need on what to expect in their first few months in post, including the most up-to-date resources and best practice.


Qualification Requirements

The SSSC also specify the qualifications you must have or be working towards as you progress through your ELC career.

Staff registered with the SSSC as a support worker will be expected to have or to be working towards a relevant Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) level 6, which is the same level as a Scottish Higher. Staff registered with the SSSC at practitioner level will be expected to have or to be working towards a relevant SCQF level 7 qualification and those registered as manager/lead practitioner will be expected to have or to be working towards a relevant SCQF level 9 qualification (a degree-level qualification).

In response to Covid-19 guidance has been issued for those who are assessing students currently undertaking ELC related qualifications. That guidance, covering SVQs and HNCs, has been posted on the SSSC website.
