OFSTED Nominated Individual

OFSTED Nominated Individual

As a movement, we operate as one single legal entity. This means that all our 19 Early Years Settings nationwide are registered under one registration. New regulations require that our Early Years Settings are represented by one nominated individual who will operate within the Administration department.

The role of the nominated individual is a strategic position requiring oversight, responsibility and overarching accountability for the application and registration on behalf of Elim as the registered body. You will report to the National Administrator who is based in Malvern.

This role currently requires 52 working days per year (1 day per week). However, we are looking for someone with capacity to work 150 days per year (3 days per week), if necessary. Your main responsibilities would allow you to work from home; however, you would also be required to organise an annual visit to each of Elim’s Early Years Settings (of which there are currently 19). Other main responsibilities would include: exercising overall accountability to Ofsted on behalf of Elim; being a point of contact for Ofsted; being a point of contact to our Early Years Settings (including any Elim church that is considering starting one up), who are in need of advice or support.

Other duties include:

  • Act as the initial point of contact with Ofsted on key matters related to the application and registration;
  • Provide ancillary support and/or contact with Ofsted, for the ‘Additional Person’ at any Elim Early Years Setting in regards to inspections or approval visits where required;
  • Visit Elim Early Years Settings outside of the annual visit if required;
  • Receive all legal notices and official communications to the registered body, establish and maintain appropriate administrative procedures for managing documentation;
  • Attend and represent Elim at Ofsted visits at local Early Years Settings when required;
  • Have a current and thorough understanding of Ofsted regulations and legislation for childcare providers;
  • Work with the ‘Additional Person’ in each setting to ensure that all Early Years Settings comply with all Ofsted reporting and that Ofsted fees are paid within the timeframe given;
  • During your annual visit to each of Elim’s settings, follow up on and discuss the annual Early Years Self-Evaluation completed by each setting.
