Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) (2002)
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended in 2002)
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981

list the main features of current employment legislation:

Employment Rights – deals with pay, hours, redundancies and termination of contract and holiday entitlements
Equalities & Discrimination law – deals with how people are treated in their employment
Health and safety legislation – protects workers, employers and the children they look after.

outline why legislation relating to employment exists:

employment law exists to protect the best interests of both employers and employees. Employment law exists to safeguard the interests of both employers and employees.
identify sources and types of information and advice available in relation to employment responsibilities and rights:

HR department
Line manager
Citizens Advice Bureau
Community Legal Advice
Access to Work
Additional Learning Support
advice from trade unions and representative bodies

describe the terms and conditions of own contract of employment:

describe your own contract

describe the information shown on own pay statement:

Name, date. Payroll number, NI number, tax code, deductions and total pay

describe the procedures to follow in event of a grievance:

My setting has their own grievance procedure and this sets out the formal way of placing a grievance. This means I have two steps to follow first.
1. Have a chat with my employer informally
2. Put my grievance in writing

identify the personal information that must be kept up to date with own employer:

Any name changes, address, contact telephone number and bank details

explain agreed ways of working with employer:

this is following my terms and conditions of contract and making sure I follow all policies and procedures as required.

explain how own role fits within the delivery of the service provided:

I have a line manager that I must report to. There are also senior staff that I must report to and work under their direction. I must not go out of my own specific area of responsibility as set in my contract. I must have good communication skills, cooperate with others and support other staff in their role.
explain the effect of own role on service provision:

I ensure that the children I work with are safe and clean. I also abide by rest periods and outdoor play periods. I support them in their intellectual, social and emotional needs. I also liaise with other agencies such as speech and language to provide care such as arranging and attending meetings or therapy sessions.

describe how own role links to the wider sector:

I follow the standards set in the EYFS framework and that of OFSTED. We are governed by local and national guidelines for private day care.

describe the main roles and responsibilities of representative bodies that influence the wider sector:

OFSTED – One of the main purposes of inspection should be to ensure that the quality of educational provision is consistent, of sufficient quality and range, and meets statutory requirements.
It should also ensure that the leadership is discharging its duties, an important one being to exercise its quality assurance role in maintain the highest standards of care.

HSE – the HSE ensures that all are safe in the setting and that any accidents, incidents of major accidents are reported correctly and that risk assessments are in place.

EYFS – The EYFS sets the standards for Learning, Development and Care for Children from Birth to Five

explore different types of occupational opportunities:

I could move onto to complete level 3 or do a teaching assistant’s course. I may move into a specialist area of child care such as behaviour or special needs.

identify sources of information related to a chosen career pathway:

name your training provider
my tutor/assessor
job centre

identify next steps in own career pathway:

where are you going to move onto next?

identify occasions where the public have raised concerns regarding issues within the sector:

The recent events of nursery workers abusing the children in their care has brought up issues of CRB checks being tighter and more monitoring of staff.

outline different viewpoints around an issue of public concern relevant to the sector:

The rising costs of childcare and facilities provided.
Health and Safety and tightening of safeguarding means that most childcare settings will not brush hair, apply sun cream without specific permission from carers.

describe how issues of public concern have altered public views of the sector

Some parents/carers feel that they are being pressurised into working and having to leave their children for longer periods in day care or school and after school clubs. They may feel that their children are not getting enough experience in different areas at these settings. Media shows the bad side of child care, the neglect and abuse of children. This makes parents/carers more wary about where they leave their children.

describe recent changes in service delivery which have affected own area of work

The government are going to introduce a change in adult to child ratios. This will mean that staff have more children under their care and will have to work longer hours in their own time to complete profiles etc. Some children may suffer as a result of not having enough adult attention.

Hope this helps Very Happy
