    one hand the Government has helped lift a major barrier for learning but on the other made it much harder for providers to recruit From August students studying for a Level Three Early Years Educator qualification were set to need a minimum of grade C in GCSE maths and English However following pressure from national associations and the nursery sector the Department for Education and the Department for Business Innovation and Skills recently performed a U turn and have agreed that students can now study for their GCSEs alongside their childcare qualification It means nursery practitioners won t face having to put their career progression on hold to get their GCSE grades before they can move forward to further study There is no requirement for students to gain grade Cs in English and maths upon completion of the Early Years Educator qualification however to be employed as a level three practitioner and counted as such in ratios new starters will need GCSEs at grade C in English and maths A survey conducted by the National Day Nurseries Association last month reported that half of nurseries were struggling to find good candidates with the right qualifications and experience and that half of current qualified level three and level two practitioners do not have GCSE maths and English at grade C or above With plans afoot to increase the number of free nursery hours for three and four year olds and the extra financial burden of the National Living Wage the NDNA is currently calling on the Government to work with the childcare sector to overcome workforce problems with a long term strategy Mrs Hustwick added There have been so many changes to childcare course requirements apprenticeship requirements and early years teacher training that nursery providers have had to work really hard

  • Law firm staff celebrate the fruits of their labours - Shropshire Business Today
    and rhubarb in a tradition called gleaning Gleaning is a relatively new concept to the UK but is an age old European tradition from the Middle Ages where land owners would invite the poor on to their land to gather the fruit that had been left unharvested The idea was the brainchild of FBC Manby Bowdler paralegal Samantha Roberts whose father John started the fruit farm 44 years ago She said At the end of a season a lot of the fruit ends up going to waste This is mainly because there may have been a bumper crop and there may be a glut of strawberries and other soft fruit on the market As the farm is mainly pick your own it s not cost effective to harvest the produce and it is difficult to find somewhere that will take a one off delivery due to a surplus so gleaning was the obvious solution I had the idea that an FBC Manby Bowdler team could take a day out and gather the fruit and deliver it to the organisations who could put it to good use rather than see it go to waste The fruit was delicious and there was more than we volunteers could possibly pick in one day but we were delighted to gather so much to help York House Niall Blackie Senior Partner at FBC Manby Bowdler said I was delighted that Samantha thought of this idea It was such a good way for the firm to help Bearstone Fruit Farm and make a kind gesture to such a worthy cause The remainder of the fruit and vegetables were donated to two church groups in Wolverhampton where FBC Manby Bowdler also has offices The firm employs more than 160 people and regularly supports community events and organisations

  • Reckon you're entitled to a teabreak at work? Well, think again... - Shropshire Business Today
    during every working day John Mehtam But contrary to what your staff may believe as an employer you re not required to provide staff with hot drinks or the facilities to make them You might decide you want to provide milk teabags and coffee and given the emotional attachment many workers have to their beloved cuppa it could be a sound business proposition But it s not something you re required to do by law and indeed the cost of providing such refreshments over a year could add up significantly particularly if you have a large workforce John said providing a kitchen kettle and fridge could also create potential health and safety issues which an employer may choose not to take on Burns electric shocks or even food poisoning could all crop up but if you have a sensible kitchen policy in place that should go a long way to reducing the risks so make sure it s clearly set out in your staff handbook Tea breaks may seem like an unassuming element of the working day but throughout history they have become an iconic symbol of British working patterns and you may decide that failing to provide the equipment or the materials to make a hot drink would be a step too far Our Alpha employment experts have wide ranging experience in creating bespoke legally compliant policies for any business and we can help you draw up a strategy that will keep your workplace kitchen and your staff safe while maintaining a tradition that dates back hundreds of years SHARE Facebook Twitter tweet Previous article Want to have your five minutes of fame Next article Law firm staff celebrate the fruits of their labours Carl Jones http 4 KA By0blG RELATED ARTICLES MORE FROM AUTHOR Stadco Schneider and Caterpillar
