Apprenticeships

Our Apprenticeships

Working with children and young people is an increasingly popular area for apprenticeships enabling children to get the most out of education in a pre-school or nursery setting.

At its simplest, an apprenticeship is a work-based learning programme. It’s brilliant for people who do not want to return to full time classroom based learning and who would prefer to shape and practice their new skills whilst delivering their role, rather than just learning the theory. At the same time, apprentices also earn a salary whilst getting their qualification.

As an apprentice you will train ‘on the job’ and gain recognised qualifications, essential skills and receive a salary. As sn apprentice you don’t pay for the training.

We can help you find an apprenticeship position or, if you’ve found an apprenticeship opportunity with a new employer or you’re already working, we can help you and your employer sign up to one of our apprenticeship programmes so that you can get your qualification.

What is an apprenticeship?

  • It’s a great way to get a new qualification whilst also working and getting a salary.
  • You will spend at least 20% of your time learning ‘off the job’ and undertaking training with Brighter Horizons Training.
  • This training (20% of your paid hours each week) can consist of zoom meetings, workshops, internal workplace training, being mentored or coached, online learning and study time.
  • The rest of your time is spent applying your knowledge and skills in the actual workplace, doing your job.
  • You train to be fully competent and working with Brighter Horizons Training and your employer we prepare you for end-point assessment (this is the point where you have completed your programme and are ready to move to accreditation).
  • You are a member of staff and as such, have the same rights and responsibilities as any other member of staff with a contract of employment.
  • You get valuable hands-on, practical work experience that will help you in developing your career.
  • There is no cost to you for the delivery of your apprenticeship training.

Why join our programme?

We pride ourselves in having a strong relationship with all of our apprentices, as well as the people who employ them. We have a tailored approach, which recognises that a single teaching style doesn’t suit everyone. Whether you need extra support and want extra online meetings, using our Zoom app for example, or if you are flying and need more challenges, we can help.

Our level 2 apprenticeship programme is so successful that a high number of our apprentices enrol straight onto level 3 programmes, once they’ve achieved the first qualification. We also have a high percentage of apprentices who move straight into Qualified Practitioner roles, demonstrating that their learning can really be put straight into practice.
