Nanny Qualifications

While there is no legal requirement for qualifications to be a nanny, Nanny-Nanny.co.uk only recommends nanny agencies that insist nannies have studied for two years and have reached Level 3 childcare qualification.  This ensures the nannies are capable of working in an in unsupervised environment.  The following nanny qualifications are all valid:

  • CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education
  • Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Certificate
  • NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)
  • SVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education (Scotland)
  • LCCIEB NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education
  • Advanced Modern Apprenticeship in Early Years Care and Education
  • CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Early Years Practice
  • NVQ Level 3 Certificate in Work with Children APEL (Accreditation of Prior Experience and Learning)
  • The Chiltern College Certificate
  • The Princess Christian College

If you have an international nanny qualification, your nanny agency should be able to advise you whether it is valid and whether you need further training.

Nanny-Nanny.co.uk also advises nannies and parents to satisfy themselves that nanny has had a CRB check and has been trained in First Aid.

Recommended Nanny Schools

All of the qualifications mentioned previously (see Essential nanny qualifications) can be attained at most further education colleges.  However if you want to attend a specialist private college these two are highly recommended.

Norland College was opened in 1892 and its nannies are recognised throughout the world, thanks in part to their distinctive brown uniforms.  Norland Nannies have a very practical training - sewing and nutritious cooking - with a focus on child-centred care and nurturing skills.  The college also offers two Montessori qualifications.  The courses last for two years and they have their own in-house employment agency, virtually guaranteeing work at the end.  For more information visit their website.

The Chiltern College has an on-site nursery and school allowing nanny pupils hands-on experience throughout their courses.  Established in 1931, it is the only residential childcare training college in the UK.  The NVQ and CACHE Level 3 diploma courses last for two years and run alongside the Chiltern Certificate with additional theory and practice including cookery and toy-making skills.  They also offer an International Postgraduate Diploma for international applicants to brush up their childcare skills while better understand nannying in the UK.  For more information visit the website www.chilterncollege.com
