Working with children can provide an extremely rewarding and exciting career. A typical day working in a nursery might involve welcoming the parents to the setting, signing the children in for the day, helping to prepare and serve meals and snacks for the children, taking part in activities and games to help the children develop skills and abilities, and of course cleaning up after the children at the end of the day!  

The Apprenticeship is an entry level Childcare qualification suitable for anyone starting their childcare career.  

The Advanced Apprenticeship is suitable for anyone wishing to progress from their level 2, or those who already have suitable experience in working with children.  

Apprenticeships are available to adults and young people. They involve achieving your NVQ along with a package of nationally recognised qualifications, including Paediatric First Aid. NVQs are available to adults and young people alike. You can take a Childcare NVQ if you are employed or if you have a voluntary placement in a childcare setting.  

A career in childcare is demanding, fun, responsible and focuses on children and families. You need to be caring, patient, have lots of energy and enjoy meeting different people. Excellent punctuality and attendance, commitment and good communication skills are all vital.
