holding answer 14 July 2011

On 6 July 2011, the Government launched a consultation on a revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which responded to recommendations made by Dame Clare Tickell in her review of EYFS which was published on 30 March 2011. The revised EYFS is intended to reduce burdens on all early years providers.

The consultation document maintains training requirements critical to safeguarding and welfare of children in settings including holiday play schemes. It is for managers to determine how much training they and their staff require and to make arrangements for it to be provided.
