What are Apprenticeships?
As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications. Anyone living in England, over 16 years-old and not in full-time education can apply.

Apprenticeships can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the industry sector. The minimum salary is £2.73 per hour; however, many apprentices earn significantly more.


EYE – Early Years Educator Information
Learners must have achieved English and maths GCSEs at grade A*-C on completion of the Early Years Educator pathway of this framework. **This is a transitional arrangement and from 1 August 2015 English and maths GCSEs at grade C or above will be required on entry for apprenticeships for the early education and childcare sector.**
