What is an apprentice?

An apprentice is a learner who ‘earns while they learn’.  Basically, you will be employed with a childcare company but will be completing a qualification alongside this. 

You will be getting hands on experience within the workplace whilst also getting support from LSCS (as your Training Provider) and your employer.

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you will have a recognised qualification.  More information about the apprenticeships we offer can be found in our prospectus.
