September 2019 - Apprentice Childcare Practitioner

Red Wellies are currently advertising for two apprentices to join our very successful childcare training programme. Along with Acacia Training, our accredited training provider, we have recruited and trained six apprentices up to their Level 3 Diploma in Children's Learning and Development (Early Years Educator) in the last five years - and five of those who qualified now have full time jobs at Red Wellies!


You can either start with your Level 2 and then progress to your Level 3 later, or if you are confident enough or already have your Level 2, then you could be Level 3 qualified in around 12 months.

If you are successful in your application, the position will be paid for 30 hours per week, six hours of which will be used for training and study at the nursery. You don't need experience in childcare but you will need to live locally to Red Wellies which is in Stapeley, Nantwich.
