Parenta have many opportunities available and offer you the chance to ‘Earn as you Learn’ whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification. The best part? There are no classes to attend!

We are currently hiring candidates to work in a nursery setting.

The moment your journey begins as an apprentice:

  • You become an employed member of staff
  • You will be paid an hourly rate
  • You will work towards gaining a full qualification – without having to attend classroom-based lessons

The apprenticeship will last a minimum of 12 months. You will be working towards a Level 2 or Level 3 in Childcare.

Throughout your role you are not alone. Parenta offer you full training, support, guidance and are here to help you progress your career. You even have a personal assessor/tutor assigned to you from the moment you start your journey as a modern apprentice.

Your role will include:

  • Working with children between the ages of 0-5 years, organising activities, being proactive with the help and care carried out within the early years teaching sector
  • Assisting and meeting the personal/emotional needs of individual children – changing nappies, feeding, caring and establishing a relationship with children
  • Work (under supervision) providing all aspects of care/support to children, ensuring they take part with day-to-day learning and play activities
  • Ensure that the setting is safe, clean, and well presented
  • Collaborate with colleagues ensuring the highest standards of work are carried out and are provided throughout your role in a positive manner
  • Contribute to a high-quality caring environment for children; this includes creating a warm, friendly, and stimulating atmosphere in which the children can develop emotionally, socially, and educationally through individual attention and group activities
  • Attend team meetings and contribute relevant ideas
  • Be able to understand and implement the setting’s confidentiality policy
  • Contribute towards an effective and supportive team environment

Throughout this role, you will gain extensive knowledge and experience within the working environment which will set you up for a great career upon completion. This will hopefully lead to permanent employment within the early learning year’s sector or even continue to the next level, undertaking further training.

Ideally you will:

  • Be passionate about caring for children
  • Have an outgoing, bubbly, motivated attitude
  • Be a committed, punctual, and reliable individual
