Meet our Team

Dandelion knows that high quality learning is facilitated by high quality interactions with skilled staff.  

 

Dandelion prides itself on its bespoke staff training package and is proud of its teams skills and qualifications: 

 

  • OVER 50% of our staff hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

  • 62% are educated to at least degree level

  • OVER 40% hold a level 3 in Early Years Education 

  • Over 30% of staff hold a level 3 Special Education Coordinator qualification (A managing director holds a master’s level Special Education Needs and disabilities coordinator (SENDCo) qualification)

  • 1 staff member holds a level 5 Early Years management course (a 2nd is now completing this)

The government wish to ‘dumb’ down the necessary qualifications for Early Years staff - this is unacceptable! Our expectations are high and our staffing team is committed to professional development; this helps them to provide the best possible Early Years teaching and learning possible.
