Childcare & Education

Childcare Apprenticeships will provide you with the skills and experience you need to pursue your career in childcare and education.

Working in the early years and education sector can provide great satisfaction and a rewarding career.  Approximately 2.7 million people are working with children and young people in England.

Professionals working in the sector include early years, primary and secondary school teaching and support roles, lecturers and support roles in further and higher education, nurseries and school business managers.

Numbers of teaching and educational professionals are predicted to grow over the next few years, with increasing demand for people with qualifications and experience in maths, science, computing and languages.

If you love working with young people and committed to giving them a great start in life, then a career in childcare could be for you.

The Children & Young People’s Workforce Apprenticeship aims to help people gain the right qualifications and skills to support children and young people to benefit from the best start in life. It’s suitable for people already working within this sector as well as those who wish to join it.
