Wales Workforce Plan Consultation

PACEY Cymru is working on a response to the Welsh Government’s consultation on the draft 10-year plan for the early years, childcare and play workforce in Wales.

The draft plan sets out how Welsh Government aim to support individuals and address the workforce development needs of all types of registered early years, childcare and play provision, in both the maintained and non-maintained sectors. There are specific questions in relation to qualification levels for childminders so it is important we have strong member input on this one.

You can read the associated documents and consultation questions here.

Welsh Government have also produced an associated presentation on Youtube for this consultation. This is available in English or in Welsh.

We would appreciate any feedback on the questions within this plan from members to include in our response. Please email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk with any views on this.
