intermediate apprenticeship for the children and young people’s workforce

This 12 month apprenticeship consists of:

  • Functional Skills Maths (Level 1) 
  • Functional Skills English (Level 1)
  • Functional Skills ITC (Level 1) 
  • Employment Rights and Responsibilities
  • Personal Learning and Thinking Skills
  • Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce


This framework aims to develop knowledge and skills relating to the Children and Young People’s Workforce (i.e. those working with children aged 0-19, primarily within Early Learning and Childcare; Children’s Social Care; Learning Development & Support Services). This framework is suitable for those looking to join the Children and Young People’s Workforce and also those already working in the sector.

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.

The benefits of the excellent training provided to our staff have reverberated throughout the home. Staff feel more empowered and valued at all levels, not just care staff but ancillary staff too. The staff has a great thirst for knowledge which we are quenching thanks to Connect 2 Care and HIT Training.

Esther Thomas, Manager, Amesbury Abbey Nursing Home

Connect 2 Care [are] always supportive and at the end of a phone, very adaptable to changing needs. The training provided has increased underpinning knowledge throughout my work force and provided an appropriate level of education towards the needs of the residents we care for.

Helen Mullander, Manager, Winton Nursing Home

Over the years, training for care qualifications has been very important to me because it has not only developed my knowledge but it has also made a positive impact within the care settings that I’ve worked in.

Lindsey Appleby-Flynn Regional, Quality Manager, Connect 2 Care
