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 3 diploma in Business Administration.

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 pro-active with the help and care carried out within the early years teaching sector.
  • 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.
  • 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 Administration.
  • Have an outgoing, bubbly, motivated attitude.
  • Be a committed, punctual and reliable individual.

The rate for apprentices (or if aged 19, for their first year only) is £3.30. This is the legal minimum pay per hour. Most receive more; a median basic hourly pay rate of £6.31 for Level 2 and 3, and £9.68 for Level 4 and 5 Higher Apprentices.

From 1 October 2016 the rate will increase by 3% to £3.40 per hour.
