Children and Young People’s Workforce Intermediate Apprenticeship at BOCK Consultancy & Personnel Development Limited

Course description

This pathway is intended to provide you with a good starting point within the sector, working under supervision (e.g. pre-school assistant, nursery assistant), however it is expected that learners will progress, either onto the Advanced Apprenticeship pathway or onto the L3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce as a stand-alone qualification. This will ensure that, as practitioners, you meet the appropriate level of competency, as determined by regulatory requirements.
Progression to L3 or Advanced Apprenticeship will also enable you to move to higher levels of work or enable you to work unsupervised, e.g. Nursery supervisor, nursery manager, pre-school manager, child minder, foster carer. This pathway also provides a good opportunity for you to move across the wider children’s workforce, should you wish to do so in future.
