What will I be doing on a childcare apprenticeship?
With Babington, you will learn on the job, building up confidence and knowledge, while also gaining valuable qualifications and earning wages at the same time. With us, you will have the chance to strengthen your skills, and progress through the ranks as a childcare professional alongside a passionate team.
On the apprenticeship, you will work towards a level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce, or level 3 depending on your experience. An apprenticeship in childcare lasts between 12 and 18 months.
You can gain a certificate in Childcare to further your career, or even obtain a qualification for your current position without the need for going to college or university. You can complete the qualification at work with the support of a highly qualified training advisor.
There is also the possibility to take onwards steps into roles as a nursery supervisor, nursery teaching assistant, and children’s social care supervisor.
If you’re passionate about working with children, a childcare apprenticeship could be ideal for you!
This is a very rewarding job, especially in the baby unit where some of the children have taken their first steps with us. Some parents don’t get to see that, but I do. My tutors have also been really good, really supportive. Someone’s always there.
