The COSH team consists of 6 permanent members of staff, plus staff who work for COSH on a regular, casual basis. In addition, we regularly have volunteers and work experience students helping the team.
Our team is led by Andrea, our senior play worker and Julie, our operational manager.
At COSH, we are keen to develop our staff and support them in keeping their training up to date and in achieving recognised qualifications.
Under OFSTED regulations, our play session supervisors must be trained to NVQ Level 3 in play work and at least three of our staff would need to be trained to NVQ level 2. At COSH we aim to exceed these requirements.
All of our staff are CRB checked and kept up to date with all mandatory training requirements.
Each of the members of our team bring their own unique qualities to the mix, including a sports fanatic, a keen baker and an arts and crafts enthusiast who can turn her hand to anything. One of our team is also a lunchtime supervisor at Chorlton Park, so she is a familiar face to the children, even if they don’t already attend COSH.
Our members of staff are instantly recognisable whenever they walk around the school in their bright polo shirts, with the COSH logo on them.
