Flexible Early Years Training (Level 3)

Hoople's flexible, Level 3 Early Years programmes are now available to start at any time of the year on a rolling basis, and are perfect for nurseries and pre-schools looking to develop the knowledge and skills of their staff.

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. Just one day per month is required for off-the-job training, with the next session taking place on 15 September 2016.

For more information, please email our friendly training team or give them a call on 01432 383500.

Could you employ a Level 2 apprentice?

As a reminder, Hoople are currently seeking employers for our many keen applicants from amongst this year's cohort of school and college leavers (aged 16 – 18). Could you help by offering employment within your nursery or pre-school?

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
For further details please visit our website, contact Dawn Haymonds or call 01432 383500.
