The Boys & Girls Nursery Apprenticeship Scheme has been created to provide an opportunity for those with an interest in childcare to gain skills, work alongside an experienced team, study towards an early year’s qualification all whilst earning a wage.
We work closely with The Childcare Company and Swift Childcare to ensure our Apprentices are coached by an allocated tutor, as well as benefitting from in-house mentors and sharing knowledge and best practices with our qualified teams. Early Years Childcare Apprenticeships take 1 to 2 years to complete, and our learners are fully supported every step of the way.
Alongside receiving fully funded training our Apprentices earn up to £1646 per month based on age/hours worked!
