It does ring a bell but dont know when it was supposed to be implimented or even if it was still happening. If the worst happens could your Mum do the NVQ route as this would be done on the job and involves collecting evidence for meeting standards, rather than an additional course and assignments. Our TA managed to do it in a term.
Hello there. It was an aspiration to have all staff in an EYFS setting qualified at level 3 but its unrealistic at the moment. There is a requirement that managers and a deputy must have a full and relevant level 3 qualification by 2012, this will affect a couple of the settings I support where the manager is like your mum, as their qualifications are no longer valid after 2012.
From September 2010 in order to count towards the EYFS Level 3 ratio requirement practitioners entering the early learning and childcare workforce and working in a maintained or independent school setting for the first time will need to have or be working towards a full and relevant qualification as defined by CWDC on the Qualifications List for those delivering the EYFS
Practitioners holding only these qualifications, who wish to be included in the
ratio of qualified staff in any other setting delivering the EYFS must complete
the a full and relevant level 3 qualification by September 2012.
