Yes. You can upgrade to PACEY Practitioner Plus membership on payment of the cost of this.  Email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk to discuss.

Can I join the programme at any stage to access training and support?

Yes, an individual can join at any stage of the programme.  If joining post IHC and PCP there would not be a learner contribution of £50 required however a programme enrolment form would need to be completed.   Email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk for further information.

I am a nanny in Wales and need to purchase public liability insurance (PLI) can I receive funding for this within the programme?

No.  The cost of nanny PLI insurance is not included as part of this programme and will need to be purchased separately.  The cost of PLI for a nanny is £32.48 until 31/03/22. Email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk to discuss

I have paid PACEY for training prior to the 1st October am I able to get a refund?

No.  The programme start date is the 1st October in line with Welsh Government funding.  Individuals can however join the programme at a later stage to benefit from some of the further training and support available.

I have paid PACEY for training after the 1st October will I be refunded this cost?

Yes.  We are processing refunds for any payments made after the 1st October.  If you do not receive this and believe you are due a refund email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk to discuss

Do I need to have completed the training by the 31 March in order to access funding?

We need to have you on programme and enrolled for the IHC training prior to the 31 March for you to be able to benefit from funding for IHC and PCP.  You will have the usual timescales to complete the training.

Are extensions to IHC/PCP able to be funded under this programme where needed?

No.  We give clear timescales for completion of the IHC and PCP units and believe these are achievable.  Learners will need to be self-motivated and manage their own time.  If an extension is required this will need to be paid by the learner if they do not meet the extenuating circumstances that are outlined in the relevant policy that is shared with you on enrolment to the training.   Email paceycymru@pacey.org.uk for further information.

PACEY Cymru have also produced the answers to some Frequently asked Questions for Local Authority staff teams available on request.
