The Apprenticeship offers an opportunity to those who currently work in or are looking to progress into the childcare sector. It will allow people to further develop skills which could ultimately lead to work in children’s centres, nursery schools or private childminder organisations.
Areas that will be covered include:
- Child and young person development
- Equality and Inclusion
- Developing relationships
- Contributing to the support of positive environment for children and young people
- Support child development
- Communication needs in different settings
Qualification upon completion include:
Intermediate Apprenticeship in Children and Young People’s Workforce
Advanced Apprenticeship in Children and Young People’s Workforce
Delivery is very flexible with opportunities to start throughout the year. Blended learning and assessment will take place in the workplace where one of the experienced tutors/ assessors will visit on a monthly basis. Apprentices will also be able to attend relevant off-the-job sessions to support them. Learners will be assessed by an independent organisation at the end of their qualification. This is referred to as End Point Assessment (EPA).
Duration: 12 to 18 months
