Childcare & Early Years Apprenticeships - City of Wolverhampton College

Childcare & Early Years Apprenticeships

If you want to work with young childrenan early years apprenticeship is a great place to start.  

With two programmes on offer – early years practitioner and early years educator – doing an apprenticeship will enable you to work in a relevant setting whilst doing your training. 

You will combine working  with studying towards a set of occupational standards set by employers, learning-on-the-job alongside experienced colleagues in the workplace, gaining job-specific skills and a range of workplace knowledge as you go – and because you’ll be doing a real job you’ll get paid too!

On your days at college, you will learn from experienced tutors and be taught in well-equipped classrooms which have a range of toys and play and educational resources that you would find in an early years setting. 

What’s more, throughout your training you’ll be supported by college staff who will work closely with your employer to ensure that the skills you are learning are what is required by their business and that you will achieve your full potential and career aspirations.

We have excellent relationships with local employers and develop training to meet the needs of their businesses, so you can be assured you’ll gain the skills that they are looking for in their employees – and, if you impress them during your training, you may even be offered a job when you’ve completed apprenticeship. 

And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further. 

Apprenticeship vacancies are being added to our website all the time – take a look at the latest opportunities here
