Hi, can I please ask whether the NVQ3 is compulsary, and if not now if it will be. I have heard that it may become compulsary in 2012 or 2015. Anyone know please. :confused:

Having an NVQ3 is an aspiration for all childcare workers not just childminder's, there is no date for it to be compulsery and if they did bring it in as a requirement they would have to allow time for people to gain it or the childcare system would collapse in a heap.

It is however useful to have some childcare qualifications, I also found gaining them quite enjoyable
