The fact that our CACHE Level 3 Award is fully accredited by Ofsted - and is considered a requirement for anyone wishing to work as a childminder/au pair by local authorities – proves how invaluable this qualification can be to your CV.

Similarly, its focus on showing you how to lead and manage can help prepare you for the financial aspects of keeping a home-based childcare business afloat, whilst also providing you with the skills and information to successfully develop a strong business plan.
