As we come to the end of apprentice week, Hungry Caterpillars is reflecting on all of our amazing apprentices.
Apprenticeships are a great way to start your career in the Childcare, by showing you are willing to ‘hit the ground running’ and take a hands-on approach to learning all the key skills you will need.
Apprentices find that training while you earn offers them a varied and enjoyable learning experience. Especially as an apprenticeship means you will not be stuck in a classroom studying, but working as a valued team member alongside a fantastic and experienced nursery team.
Coming into a company as an apprentice can feel a bit scary, but in a nursery settings many of the team would have started their career the same way and are all hugely supportive.
A main attraction to applying for an apprenticeships is to be able to ‘earn while you learn’, so at the end of your course you will have no student loans or tuition fees to worry about!
As an apprentice at Hungry Caterpillars you will automatically be allocated a mentor, someone you can turn to with any worries, questions or just have a chat. Lots of our staff started as apprentices and have worked their way up into managerial roles through hard work and determination.
This week we want to show our appreciation to all our apprentices both past and present, thanking them for the amazing work they do not only for Hungry Caterpillars but to kick start their incredible careers!
