Applications and renewals by nannies will be dealt with by Ofsted who will deal with the voluntary registration to the Ofsted Childcare Register (OCR).
The registration requirements for this body are as follows:
Voluntary registration with OFSTED is a relatively new scheme and many nannies are not currently registered. If you are not OFSTED registered and your employers require you to do so, you will have to go through the registration process. All candidates are required to complete common core skills training, even if you already have a childcare qualification. This is because the common core skills training includes some modules not found in childcare courses, including (for example) multi agency working. You can either book into a Common Core Skills course or do the course viacorrespondence through the likes of MNT TRAINING.
You will also have to hold an accepted paediatrics first aid certificate and nanny insurance. Once you have all of this information you can register on the scheme, pay, and the DBS will be applied for.
OFSTED registration is not particularly time consuming however it can take around 2 months to gather the required documents and for OFSTED to process the application and DBS. For many parents it is still worth the time and cost in savings.
OFSTED registration is a financial saving to families, therefore to register your nanny to OFSTED, it is typically funded by the employer. Any dedicated nanny should absorb the cost of a first aid certificate and nanny insurance if they do not already hold these.
Salaries for nannies, housekeepers and babysitters vary according to area, experience and qualifications. All salaries are quoted in Net figures with the exception of Maternity Nannies and Babysitters. Please note that Tax and National Insurance need to be added to figures below to provide Gross rates.
