When it comes to responsibility, it doesn’t get much greater than looking after someone else’s children! Far from an easy job, Childcare is a challenging but rewarding career. As an apprentice you will be helping to ensure the welfare of children, keeping them safe, occupied and cared for. Often through play, you will help devise and deliver activities that encourage a child’s personal and social learning and development. Progression routes within the industry include Senior Playworker, Leader, or maybe you might want to open your own nursery one day?
