Apprentice Nursery Nurse

We are delighted to offer the opportunity for an apprentice to work in our nursery and gain childcare qualifications while earning the correct wage for their age, NOT apprenticeship rates. Skills Group will be your training provider, we have worked with their staff for a number of years and know them to be excellent. If successful you will be training up to level 3 in a child care qualification. We would be willing to take on a candidate who has already reached level 2 or with no previous childcare qualifications.

You will be part of a team who care for, and provide, for children’s  learning and development in a safe and caring environment.  To do this you will need to be motivated to learn, demonstrate your enthusiasm and model good communication skills. You will also need an ability to play and provide productive play experiences for children. As a member of the team you must be a good role model to the children in everything you do and say.

Desired Skills
The successful candidate will be professional in manner and understand the important role you will play as a member of our team. You will have good oral and written communication skills and be able to organise yourself and anticipate work requirements.

Personal Skills
You must be caring and cheerful with plenty of enthusiasm for your work. Patience and a desire to understand the children’s needs are vital.

Future Prospects
We only employ a very small number of apprentices.  We do this with a view to training the right people to hopefully become permanent members of staff.

Weekly wage – to meet national minimum wage for age.


Working week – 30+ Monday to Friday
