Childcare and nursery apprenticeships and training opportunities. Find apprentice jobs and vacancies for child care, nursery and playgroup assistants  in the UK and abroad.

Typically, childcare can involve working with three distinct groups: babies and toddlers, children under 5, and then kids up to 15 years old. The services and roles that you learn about would include: child development, childminding, nursery nurse, care worker, youth support worker, after school activities, teaching assistant, au pair and child health care.

The relevant apprentice framework for this sector is the Children & Young People’s Workforce apprenticeship – which comes in three flavours: basic, intermediate and advanced.
