Through this Apprenticeship, you will learn the essential knowledge needed to work with children in many different early years settings. You will understand key topics in safeguarding, health and wellbeing in children, children’s play and development.

To begin this Apprenticeship, you will need to complete a DBS check. Apprentices without Level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this prior to taking the End-Point Assessment.

You may be exempt from paying fees though, or eligible to pay a reduced fee – known as fee remission.
