Early Years Educator: GCSE Requirements

From 3 April 2017, the requirement for Level 3 Early Years Educators (EYE) to hold GCSE English and maths A*-C, will be broadened to Level 2 qualifications, including Functional Skills.

This includes those who already hold an EYE qualification, began studying an EYE from September 2014, or will achieve an EYE in the future.

Please refer to the Early Years Workforce Strategy (March 2017) for further details.
