Childcare and Early Years Apprenticeships (all options)

  • Students

    Childcare is an extremely rewarding yet responsible occupation which suits those that communicate and interact well with children. Good childcare is vital to help individuals grow, develop and succeed in life.

    An apprenticeship in the Children’s Care sector is the perfect opportunity to combine learning with the practical experience of working with children, usually within a nursery or day centre.

    Both intermediate and advanced apprenticeships include a paediatric first aid module.

    If you are undecided or unsure about starting an apprenticeship or are not sure of the skill type or level that’s right for you, apply here. We will arrange to meet you for a guidance and interview session, we’ll explain the different routes open to you and the types of local work and careers this training can lead to.
