What will you learn in this course?

Apprentices on the Early Years Practitioner Apprenticeship will be taught how to work and interact effectively with children in an educational setting. This includes organizing activities, fostering purposeful play opportunities, and most importantly ensuring a child’s welfare and safety at all times. Apprentices will explore how to work under the supervision of an Early Years Educator to meet the demands and interests of children within early years settings. Apprentices will increase in confidence and professionalism and become significant member of any early years team.

Previous accomplishments are meticulously deliberated from the start to ensure time on the programme is maximized. Our approach is strong Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) to guarantee that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career advancement is carefully mapped into their journey.
