What Qualifications do I need to work in a nursery


With manager level nursery jobs you will need a full and relevant qualification such as the Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce. Having a good level of general education is highly important, you’ll need to have GCSE’s graded A* to C, especially English and Maths. By law, most people within the nursery environment need to hold a valid childcare qualification, which means nurseries can look for a mix of qualified and unqualified candidates.

  • Have a good level of GCSE level qualifications, in particular for the core subjects, Maths, English, and Science.
  • DBS checks are a must and will be carried out to make sure you can work with children.
