Common Core Skills
Known officially as the Common Core Skills and Knowledge for the Children's Workforce, or The Common Core for short. Implemented by the Children's Workforce Development Council, it demonstrates a set of values for Childcare Practioners to work by.

It is also suitable for unqualified home-based child-carers wishing to register with Ofsted.
