Ongoing training is an important part of childminding because it ensures that you keep up to date and continue to learn new information that can enhance your childminding service for children and their parents/carers.
Apart from refreshing Safeguarding Children and First Aid training, there is no set amount of training courses or training hours you must complete.
However, Ofsted do ask on inspection, what CPD (Continuous Professional Development) you have completed since your last inspection and how you have used the learning you have gained.
Having an easy to use training plan/record can help you identify training that you would like to do or need to do and then record when you have completed training. It can also help you plan the order in which you complete online training you get with Annual Membership.
