Before this course, if you are looking to register as a childminder or become approved as a nanny in Wales, you need to attend a briefing session.

Accessing the training

The first thing to do is to attend a briefing session unless you are working as a childminder assistant. These are available through PACEY or sometimes through your local authority. Contact PACEY Cymru on 02920 351407 or email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk to find out more about your individual local authority’s position. Once these points have been confirmed we can guide you through the process of enrolling onto a course.

Course delivery

The training is delivered online so you will need access to a computer, and some computer skills, to complete the course. You can view your training on or offline on an Apple or Android handheld device (a phone or tablet), but you will need access to a PC or laptop in order to upload your written portfolio to the e-learning platform as Unit 326 Introduction to home-based childcare (IHC) is assessed through a portfolio of work.

All leaners will receive six months’ free PACEY learner membership.  This includes access to resources through the members area on the PACEY website to support around completion of the course.

The course is designed to be flexible and to allow you to combine training whilst balancing work commitments and family life.
