This 12 month apprenticeship consists of:
This qualification is suitable for learners who work, or wish to work, with children from birth to 5 years old in a variety of settings.
The qualification prepares learners for employment as Early Years Educators, enabling them to work with children from birth to 5 years and gain knowledge of children aged 5 to 7 years. It develops the knowledge and skills required to work with children from birth to 5 years together with an understanding of the expected development of children aged 5 to 7 years. The qualification also provides opportunities for the confirmation of competence for learners working towards Early Years Educator status.
Learners considering this framework should have an interest in working with children and should be suitable to do so as it is a requirement to undergo an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS). Learners will be required to demonstrate competence within their chosen area of the children and young people’s workforce and will therefore be required to be employed within the sector.
An employer will determine their own entry requirements for an employee to commence this apprenticeship, but these general entry requirements apply; you have to be aged 16 years or over and must be working in the sector for at least 30 hours a week. You also need to be a resident in England and not taking part in full-time education.
If you are not yet employed, C2C advertises apprenticeship vacancies with employers on the National Apprenticeship website. This is a free service and there are many apprenticeship opportunities available. You can apply for current Apprenticeship Vacancies here.
You can apply for an Apprenticeship with C2C at any time of the year provided you meet the entry requirements.
