Insight into what a Childcare Apprenticeship involves.
This week we have one of our brilliant learners Yukiko, sharing with us her apprenticeship experience and her FNTC Training and Consultancy highlights. We asked her questions about what she’s enjoyed most, to what she has planned for the future.
What have you enjoyed about your childcare apprenticeship?
“I really loved having the opportunity to spend time with children and develop my childcare skills, in an environment where I can develop my skills. My accessor made my time really special and we had a great bond. She helped me with accessing resources, my written English skill and my Maths qualification, which I passed!”
Why did you choose to do your apprenticeship?
“25 years ago I gained a qualification working with children, however after moving to the Isle of Wight my new employer asked me to refresh my qualifications and gain the English equivalent.”
What are your plans for the future now that you have completed?
“Now I’m on my way to finishing my Level 2 Children and Young People’s Workforce Apprenticeship, I would like to work towards my Level 3 Childcare Apprenticeship and continue working with my current employer.”
How did you find out about FNTC Training?
“My employer has been working with FNTC Training and Consultancy for some time and has always had positive experiences, so she put me in contact with them.”
Would you recommend an apprenticeship and if so why?
“Yes, definitely! An apprenticeship is a great opportunity because you can work, earn a wage and train in your own time. It’s allowed me to have a healthy work-life balance without the need to go to college and has helped me improve my skills in an industry I love.”
