Apprenticeships have employed status, however, if you do not have a job then we will support you to find one.

Please note: Owing to the strict requirements of the law, to be considered for a placement you will need a clear DBS Enhanced Disclosure in order to take the course.

You will be assessed by a variety of methods including taught sessions at Coventry College for one day a week and observations within the workplace.

On successful completion of a Level 2 Apprenticeship you may progress to Level 3 Children and Young People’s Workforce if they have already secured and commenced a job role as a team leader/supervisor in the Early Years sector.
