What you can expect

On successful completion of your Early Years Educator Advanced Level Apprenticeship you will hold a Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner (EYE).

As a higher level Apprentice you will be working within childcare at a level where you will either be working on your own or supervising others. You will be placed in a position where you will be able to demonstrate your prior experience in this sector and can demonstrate the competencies required at this level.

The childcare sector is forever expanding, and presently makes up approximately 10% of the labour market in England and includes people working in all sectors of the economy. A large number are public sector employees, including in schools, colleges, local authorities and the NHS. Many work in the private sector – particularly in early years, but there are private providers in all areas of services to children and young people.

The exact details of your role while undertaking your Apprenticeship will depend on your employer. Typically, nurseries can be open from around 7am in the morning to 6pm in the evening. You would normally work up to eight hours a day within these times. Some settings are also open on Saturdays.

I completed my Level 3 children and young people's workforce with Paragon. I couldn’t have asked for a better tutor! She was always there to help (no matter what time of day!), quick response with helpful advice to texts, emails or calls and came to see me at my nursery once a month without fail! I wouldn't have been able to get through it without her.
