Over the course of 15 - 18 months (dependent upon the level of course an apprentice is being enrolled onto), you will study an Early Years apprenticeship programme. This will contain units such as health & safety in a childcare setting, holistic child development, safeguarding in a childcare setting, child development, communication with children, purposeful play and educational programmes, supporting children with special educational needs, collaborative working in early years childcare, well-being principles for children and at higher levels, child protection, data, supporting key life transitions and behaviour management (these modules may differ).
Our delivery of training is through blended learning. Supported by one of our sector specialist tutors, they will deliver teaching sessions using various methods including face to face teaching, Skype, Facetime, telephone and peer virtual classroom whilst using our interactive multi-sensory teaching resources. Teaching sessions are normally bi-weekly or monthly, depending on the learner’s preferred learning style. Additionally, the tutor will provide the support required to ensure the learner enjoys and ultimately successfully achieves their goals and completes their training. We want learners to feel that our team are approachable at any stage of their learning journey.
If you do not hold GCSE Maths & English (or equivalent), these will be delivered alongside the apprenticeship programme.
