We are pleased to announce the launch of this new course which is designed to help staff who have contact or work with children or young people and/or their families and carers.
The first course will take place on Wednesday 8 June from 1.30 - 4.30 pm and is priced at just £30 + VAT per participant. For further information or to book your place, visit CPD on line or phone Jayne Francis on 01432 260677.
Flexible Early Years (EYE) Training (Level 3)
Do you have staff within your nursery or pre-school setting whose skills and knowledge you'd like to develop?
If so, don't forget that Hoople's Level 3 EYE programmes can now be started at any time of year. Subject to entry requirements (all Level 3 participants must hold at least a GCSE grade C or above in English and mathematics), learners are not restricted to specific term dates and can start the programme at a time convenient to both of you.
Hoople has received some excellent applications from this year's cohort of school and college leavers (aged 16-18).
Can you help by offering employment within your nursery or pre-school setting?
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes where learners develop valuable skills and knowledge 'on the job', whilst earning a wage. They're also a great way for your nursery or pre-school setting to develop the skills you need and help you plan for your future staffing requirements.
Your commitment will be:
To employ the apprentice for at least 30 hours per week for a minimum of one year
To pay them the National Minimum Wage for Apprentices, currently set by Government at £3.30 per hour (rising to £3.40 per hour from September)
To release them to undertake the classroom element of their apprenticeship, which usually equates to two days per month at the Hoople Training Centre in Hereford
