Childrens and Young Peoples Workforce Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship at Hertford Regional College

Course description

This Apprenticeship is for people who work with children - from birth to 16-year-olds (and their families) - in settings or services whose main purpose is early learning and childcare. Workers in this area make sure children are looked after, kept active, happy and nourished. They also help children develop social and practical skills. This provides a fulfilling opportunity to work with children and young people while also gaining an understanding into their development. Equally, it ensures apprentices put childcare theory into practice. As an apprentice, the exact nature of your job role will depend on your employer.
