Apprenticeships are becoming one of the most popular ways to start out in a career path for young people in the UK, as more and more companies put more emphasis on experience over qualifications.
With an apprenticeship you get the best of both worlds by gaining experience in a real working environment whilst gaining industry-recognised qualifications and earning a wage for the work you do.
We work with companies of all sizes in and around Buckinghamshire who have apprenticeship opportunities, to help them attract talented young people to fill those roles by promoting them here on WANNABE.Read More
Businesses with apprenticeships vacancies on WANNABE are actively looking for eager candidates to fill the roles, so making a great impression at the application stage is absolutely vital.
They understand that this might be your first time applying for a job and don’t expect you to know everything about the process at first. Although it’s always a good idea to be as prepared as possible before picking up the phone or sending an email with your CV to an employer so we recommend reading the job posting properly and doing some research on the business before getting in contact so that the conversation flows well and you can have a good discussion about the role without needing to ask them too many questions that could have been answered if you did some prior research.

Job TitleApprentice Nursery Assistant
About the Organisation
A home from home family centred childcare setting in Aylesbury.
An exciting opportunity to begin your career with Parenta Training, working in an early years setting. Become an apprentice in one of our fun and friendly nurseries working with children aged from birth to five years gaining experience while you learn.
Apprenticeship qualification to be undertaken
Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People's Workforce
Level 2 Technical Certificate
Level 1 Functional Skills in English, maths, and ICT (where applicable)
Employee Rights and Responsibilities (ERR)
Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS)
Work based learning
Parenta have many opportunities available and offer you the chance to ‘Earn as you Learn’ whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification. The best part? There are no classes to attend!
We are currently hiring candidates to work in a nursery setting.
The moment your journey begins as an apprentice:
you become an employed member of staff
you will be paid an hourly rate
you will work towards gaining a full qualification – without having to attend classroom based lessons
The apprenticeship will last a minimum of 12 months. You will be working towards a Level 2 or Level 3 in Childcare.
Throughout your role you are not alone. Parenta offer you full training, support, guidance and are here to help you progress your career. You even have a personal assessor/tutor assigned to you from the moment you start your journey as a modern apprentice.
Your role will include:
working with children between the ages of 0-5 years, organising activities, being proactive with the help and care carried out within the early years teaching sector
assisting and meeting the personal/emotional needs of individual children – changing nappies, feeding, caring and establishing a relationship with children
work (under supervision) providing all aspects of care/support to children, ensuring they take part with day-to-day learning and play activities
ensure that the setting is safe, clean and well presented
collaborate with colleagues ensuring the highest standards of work are carried out and are provided throughout your role in a positive manner
contribute to a high quality caring environment for children; this includes creating a warm, friendly and stimulating atmosphere in which the children can develop emotionally, socially and educationally through individual attention and group activities
attend team meetings and contribute relevant ideas
be able to understand and implement the setting’s confidentiality policy
contribute towards an effective and supportive team environment
Throughout this role, you will gain extensive knowledge and experience within the working environment which will set you up for a great career upon completion. This will hopefully lead to permanent employment within the early learning year’s sector or even continue to the next level, undertaking further training.
Ideally you will:
be passionate about caring for children
have an outgoing, bubbly, motivated attitude
be a committed, punctual and reliable individual
The rate for apprentices (or if aged 19, for their first year only) is £3.70 from the 1st April 2018, however some settings offer more, with most offering a pay review with potential wage increase upon completion of probation.
Future Prospects/Career Interests
When you have successfully completed your Apprenticeship, you may have the opportunity to continue with an exciting career in childcare! Initially you will be working towards an NVQ Level 2 in Childcare, with a chance to progress to a level 3 after that.
