Disqualification by Association

The Department for Education (DfE) has published revised statutory guidance for schools and local authorities in England that relates to disqualification under the Childcare Act 2006, which came into force on 31 August 2018.

The guidance has now been revised and removes disqualification by association for individuals working in childcare in non-domestic settings (eg schools and nurseries).
