Experiential Play have been working with Skills Development Scotland to successfully deliver Modern Apprenticeships in Childcare for anyone aged 16-19.

The right support can make all the difference when it comes to learning new skills. It’s the reason why Skills Development Scotland offers you the chance to gain invaluable industry recognised accreditations – through Modern Apprenticeship training.

Your employer and Skills Development Scotland will meet the cost of Modern Apprenticeships employee training, so there’s no cost to you to learn new skills.

The only investment you need make is in terms of time – and the effort that you put in will bring enormous rewards, in the form of improved self-confidence, competence, efficiency and motivation.

What does a Modern Apprenticeship involve?

Apprentices are supported to achieve SVQ Social Services (Children and Young People) at SCQF Level 7. A Modern Apprenticeship will also give you a range of ‘soft skills’ to draw upon, including sound communication, teamwork and problem solving skills, and improved numerical and IT skills -all of which are invaluable to any employer.

What makes us different?

MA’s will be expected to attend full day teaching sessions once a fortnight at our training centre in Glasgow.

We offer a range of enriched, practical teaching workshops and seminars, free of charge to MA’s and their mentors, to enhance and develop further skills and knowledge.

Support sessions, in the nursery setting or in our training classroom, will be available on a regular basis.

We offer the highest standard of learning and teaching, to enable all MA’s to not just achieve their qualification but to aspire to be effective members of staff.

If you are interested in applying for a Modern Apprenticeship please contact us.
