The Student Volunteer Toolkit is essential for keeping all the correct and relevant information for students and volunteers. This Toolkit was designed by Canavan Byrne to support childcare providers to comply with the Childcare Act 1991. All documents are made in soft copy so that you can make the relevant changes to suit your individual service.
Having all of the correct and relevant paperwork is essential for the efficient running of an Early Years Service. It is also required to ensure compliance with the Early Years Inspectors from Tusla. The pack includes a comprehensive guide on how best to use the policy templates and forms. It also includes all of the forms and checklists you will require. These should be used for any student or volunteer who will be working at your Service.
