Department of Education: Register & set a min. level of childcare qualification for all UK nannies.
Nannies are the only childcare providers that are not compulsorily registered or have any minimum level of qualification. Anybody can come to the UK, obtain a DBS check and then work with children without any qualifications or registration. This is putting all children within the sole charge of a nanny at risk as has been highlighted recently by many horror stories of unqualified nannies harming the children in their care. Nannies should be registered nationally and should have to obtain a minimum level of childcare qualification before they look after children. This is vital for the safety and protection of our children.

Department of Education
I am petitioning the Department of Education to register and set a minimum level of childcare qualification of NVQ 2 or equivalent for all nannies working in the UK. The aim is to protect children who are at risk as a result of being in the sole charge of nannies with no qualifications or experience. Please consider my petition for their sake.
