What will I be doing?

For those that are energetic and love children, the level 2 apprenticeship in Childcare is a fantastic opportunity to get started in the industry and gain essential qualifications.

During the apprenticeship, you will work in a supporting role as a nursery assistant, crèche worker, or educational needs assistant to gain hands-on experience, and get a real insight into what it takes to work in childcare. The level 2 will provide you with a foundation of skills needed to take your career in childcare to the next level.

To ensure the wellbeing and education of the children, some of your responsibilities will involve:

  • Supporting the young person’s development through play, communication, and numeracy
  • Providing a challenging and stimulating environment for the children
  • Supporting positive behaviour and responding effectively to inappropriate behaviour
  • Understanding the kinds of influences that can affect a young person’s development.
  • Giving the children choices, and planning out their experiences

What qualifications will I achieve?

You will achieve a level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce, and if required, level 2 Functional Skills in Mathematics, English, and ICT.

The level 2 certificate in Childcare will give you a foundation of knowledge, which you can then strengthen with the level 3 apprenticeship in Childcare.

What are the entry requirements?

Requirements include C and above in maths and English GCSE.

Due to the nature of the role you will be required to undergo a CRB check. You should also be of a warm, respectful and outgoing nature.

What can I do afterwards?

The apprenticeship assists career progression for those working in a childcare setting such as a nursery, pre-school or crèche.

The apprenticeship could lead to roles such as a nursery nurse, childminder, or special educational needs assistant. However, a further variety of roles could open up to you after completing the level 3 apprenticeship in Childcare.
