Overview

Early Years Educators, and other job roles such as nursery nurse and childminders, are highly trained professionals who play a key role in ensuring that young children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. They work in a range of settings including full day care, children’s centres, pre schools, reception classes and as childminders. They may either be working on their own or supervising others to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requirements set by Government for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.

Delivery Model

To ensure you are on track to complete your apprenticeship in a timely manner, there is a delivery model that you can download. The delivery model will help you to keep on track of your deadlines and will also make sure you are completing the units in the correct order and at the right pace. You can discuss this with your Skills Coach.

Resources

You can find the resources for your apprenticeship within each of the named units. Within each unit, you will be provided with knowledge guidance in the form of power point sessions, videos, wider reading, research activities and a short quiz to test the impact of what you have learnt. The purpose of these activities is to build your knowledge and upon completion, they can also be used as part of your off-the-job hours.

You can also complete the knowledge assessment tasks that forms evidence for your apprenticeship and read the skills assessment tasks so you can prepare how you will apply these skills. Your Skills Coach will discuss these with you.
