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
