List of required qualifications for Wales (playwork)

SkillsActive has produced a list of Required Qualifications to work within the Playwork sector in Wales which is available in English and Welsh. This provides guidance for employers and practitioners, training providers, regulatory bodies and other organisations on the required occupational qualifications for those working in the Playwork sector with children up to the age of 12 years.

The list should be used in conjunction with the qualification list produced by the Social Care Wales and any other sector skills council with responsibility for parts of the early years workforce working in different sectors (e.g. health, education). It should also be used in conjunction with service standards and regulations, where stipulated by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW).

This List of Required Qualifications to work within the Playwork Sector in Wales is fundamental to our work and supersedes all previous versions.
