Changes to the Equi-Skills Programme
To fall in line with the National education programme and because of insurance requirements, we have had to introduce a minimum age for enrolling onto the Equi-Skills programme. For all future enrolments, the minimum age will be 12.
The ENIC committee is in the process of developing resources for children younger than 12 that will compliment and lead into the current resources.
Those members under 12 and who are already enrolled can continue training with the current workbooks, however will need to remain financial EFA members and formal assessment cannot be undertaken until the age of 12.
