award-winning childcare & education apprenticeships

Shaping the minds of the future

We’re proud to support hundreds of apprentices who have chosen to undertake an apprenticeship in the rewarding field of childcare and education, every year.

We offer apprenticeships that support Early Years Educators, Children Young People and Families Managers, those working in Residential Childcare and Teaching Assistants.

Your employees will have a dedicated Personal Tutor, who has worked first-hand in the industry, has the knowledge and expertise when it comes to education delivery and through 1 to 1 sessions or virtually through group conferencing will enable evidence learning.

There will be practical on the floor training delivery, to which is paramount when it comes to quality of care and the use of our intuitive learner management system, BUD, where all evidence can be confidentially gathered, working toward outstanding End-Point Assessment (EPA).

Our team of Personal Tutors all have industry experience and understand the unique challenges, skills and behaviours that a career in childcare and education requires.

At Paragon Skills we offer intermediate and advanced level apprenticeships in the childcare & education sector.

Your employees will have their own dedicated Personal Tutor who will meet with them via remote 1 to 1 sessions, at your place of work or at our academy where appropriate.

Our Personal Tutors’ approach to training is flexible, allowing us to work with the learner in the way that works best for them.

Where there are multiple learners with one employer, workshop/group delivery may be suitable.

These can take place either via remote or face-to-face sessions dependant on your place of work, style of working & schedule. Remote or face-to-face sessions can take place, dependent on your place of work and your employee’s preferred style of working.

Learners are expected to carry out self-study using Paragon Skills’ collaborative learning platform, Bud.

Learners have access to their Personal Tutors via email, telephone and Bud.
