We understand how difficult it can be to organise, access and prioritise training in early years. Whilst we offer apprenticeships (see below) for you to ‘grow your own’ staff in a very cost effective way, we also offer a number of other routes to helping you through the maze of mandatory or best practice training and development opportunities. These often feature as statutory requirements or are seen to support Good or Outstanding inspection outcomes.

Our team is unique. We have all been managers of pre-schools or nurseries, have built settings from scratch or bought settings which were struggling, have worked alongside inspection regulators and have childminding expertise. We really can help with whatever perspective, priority, budget or dilemma you have. Just ask! Call us on 01403 786620, who will arrange for us to come and meet you or arrange a telephone call if you prefer. Alternatively, have a look at our short courses and book directly if the course you want is there – but if it isn’t, contact us and we’ll endeavour to deliver whatever training you need.

Why choose Brighter Horizons for apprenticeship training?*

We understand your needs because we work IN early years! Above all, we want to support you to help develop an apprentice so that they add value to your team right from the outset – helping to shape them to become someone you want to keep in your team, someone who may be an aspiring practitioner/leader of the future!

Throughout the Apprenticeship you will be supported and guided by a member of our staff and will have the support of the Brighter Horizons training centre. We will work with you to:

  • Recruit an apprentice or support your existing staff onto the Apprenticeship scheme
  • Find you the right apprentice (we have a number of pre-screened candidates on our system).
  • All you have to do is interview them to make sure they are the right fit for your team – saving you time and money
  • Plan and design training programmes to meet your needs and the individuals – this extends to offering you discounted training through Brighter Horizons for all your team (including courses on Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, SEN, Preparing for your inspection, and Enhancing communication skills (which includes basic Makaton) for example)
  • Provide training to support learning that takes place in the workplace
  • Monitor apprentice progress and provide help and support
  • Ensure quality standards are met
