Shape the future of our Early Years Educator standard

Everyone has a voice and we need yours to shape the future of our Early Years Educator standard delivery

There’s a new and exciting opportunity just around the corner, it’s called the Early Years Educator apprenticeship standard.

This new standard is a must for anyone wanting to be in early years education and work with children from birth to five years of age. It’s a Level 3 qualification, which is available to people already employed in the sector, as well as those looking to carve out a career in childcare and education. Apprentices will gain the skills, knowledge and behaviours to be an inspirational educator, plus get a full and relevant qualification too.

Calling all childcare and education employers

For employers, it’s a fantastic way to ensure your staff are fully up to speed with the latest practices and know their stuff when it comes to early years education.
Interserve Learning & Employment have been very busy getting ready for the standard and are pleased to say that we will be one of the first companies to launch it in the UK. We believe in the power of collaboration and that’s why we are asking for your input. We want to get your thoughts on the apprenticeship so that we can fine-tune the final stages of our curriculum and ensure it meets the needs of the sector.
If you would like to be one of the first to hear about this exciting new development, just leave your details in the optional boxes at the bottom of the survey and we will be in touch with you as soon as the early years educator apprenticeship standard has been launched.
