Decide if this is the right framework for you, then...
This Techical/Professional Apprenticeship helps you upskill your workforce, to bring staff into line with other professional colleagues in social services. It’s suitable for early years and childcare employees who are ready to advance in their career and build their skills.
Your employee will study for an SCQF level 9 Professional Development Award Childhood Practice.
Candidates must be employed in the early years sector, and be employed as a manager or lead practitioner.
After completing this level, candidates will be endorsed in their position as lead practitioner/manager in early years services.
We will contribute towards the training costs, paying the learning provider directly in incremental payments throughout the course of the apprenticeship.
Use the contribution tables to work out the funding level for this framework:
An enhanced funding contribution is paid for employees who are aged 16 – 19. For those who are disabled and care-experienced, this is extended up to and including age 29.
Speak to a range of learning providers to find the best deal and agree on a flexible approach which will meet the needs of your business.
Like any other employee of your business, you’ll pay the Modern Apprentice's wages. This is not set by SDS, but we do encourage all employees to pay the living wage. Remember, you must pay at least the National Minimum Wage.
It will take between 12-24 months to complete.
The next step is to find a learning provider that offers this apprenticeship.
