Pensions for Nannies

October 23rd, 2015

Latest news on pensions from our working partners at Nannytax:

The New Government Workplace Pension Campaign 

The government has just launched a new campaign to raise awareness of auto enrolment. The latest addition to the campaign is a TV advert featuring ‘Workie’ – the physical embodiment of the workplace pension.
The advert highlights how smaller domestic employees such as nannies are not exempt from the legislation.
We at Nannytax want to make agencies aware that we have auto enrolment in hand. We have a service ready for Nannytax clients to use and run alongside their payroll. This will manage all of the contributions into the nanny’s own pension pot, providing that she is eligible.

To find out more about how auto enrolment affects nannies, please get in touch

Discounted MNT courses

June 29th, 2015

We are working with MNT to offer all our nannies huge discounts on some of their most popular courses!

Please get in touch if you are thinking of taking up any of these and we can give you the code:

-      OCN Maternity Practitioner Award, learner will receive a £25 discount on the usual course fee. Just so you are aware, we are currently offering a Summer discount for the Maternity Practitioner Award Course – reduced from £555 to £400 but only until 31 July. Therefore, the learner is getting considerably more than the £25 discount.  

-      For any candidates interested in becoming registered with Ofsted on the Voluntary Register, candidates enrolling onto the Common Core Skills Course get a £15 discount on the usual course fee for the learner.  

NB: To benefit from the discount, learners will need to call the MNT office on 0844 826 8446 to make the booking. The discount won’t be applied if they enrol online.
