Apprentices form a valid role within our nurseries as employed members of the staff team.  It will be expected that apprentices progress from Intermediate Level 2. This starts your progression of career at Busy Bees, hopefully going on to fulfil senior positions within our nurseries.

  • Involvement in planning stimulating activities for the children in your care in line with the EYFS
  • Assisting in delivering a high level of quality childcare maintaining a professional and positive outcome for both children and staff
  • Building effective relationships with children, parents and team members
  • Ensuring each child's individual needs are met

As an Apprentice, you will be working alongside qualified staff who will show you the ropes. You will be assigned a mentor to provide you with support within your nursery, helping you to complete the tasks you need so you can progress in your qualification. You will attend Learning & Development courses at our training centres, where you will be provided with knowledge to develop your personal skills and practice.

Your Development Coach will visit you regularly in your nursery, assessing the work you are doing, providing recognition for your progress and vital guidance on how you can improve.
