This Apprenticeship is ideal if you want to work with children and support their learning and development, ensuring they are looked after, kept active, happy and nourished.

On the Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship you’ll work under supervision in roles such as a nursery assistant, playgroup assistant or assistant youth support worker.

If you choose to progress onto the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship you’ll use your own initiative to plan and organise your own work in the role of a nursery nurse or playgroup leader, amongst others.

Both programmes allow you to progress within this rewarding sector, whether it’s continuing your studies or going directly into employment.
