What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
We are offering the Level 3 Early Years Educator qualification, subject to initial assessment. The apprenticeship will last 18-20 months and you will gain hands-on experience working with children aged 0-5 years in a nursery environment. Your assessor will visit you every 4-6 weeks at the nursery and you will attend monthly training sessions at our Central Support Office in Newport Pagnell. You will have some time within your working hours each week to start your coursework. You will be required to finish your coursework at home and must ensure you submit it by the deadline set by your Assessor.
If you don’t hold GCSEs at grade 4 or above in English and Maths you will complete Functional Skills qualifications with us alongside the early years course.
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
