So you’re interested in a career in childcare?

Here at Kids Allowed, we’re passionate aboutdelivering the best possible childcareand achieving our primary purpose of“Making Children Happy”.

We are offering apprenticeships to enthusiastic individuals as an alteative to college. An apprenticeship where you can ‘ea while you lea’ and be a part of the Kids Allowed family.

We are a multi-award winning local company and have established a track record in providing the highest quality apprenticeship programmes for school leavers. Through our award winning training Academy, we support apprentices to gain their Level 3 qualification in childcare.

Why choose an apprenticeship instead of College?

At college, you do a lot of classroom training and a little bit of work experience. As an apprentice you will do most of your leaing “on the job” with a much smaller element of classroom training at our Academy. In the same time it would take you to gain your childcare qualification at College, you will gain the same qualification in the workplace, you will have been paid and you will have gained lots of hands on experience! If you feel ready to start work, we feel there is no better way to gain your qualification in childcare than with Kids Allowed.

What are we looking for in an apprentice?

We are looking for people with a great attitude to join our team, someone with a thirst to acquire new knowledge, as well as a passion for childcare and working with young children. There really is no greater privilege than working with children to give the next generation the very best start in life.

You need Maths and English language GCSE at grade C or above.

In exceptional circumstances we may allow you to join our apprenticeship programme without these GCSEs, however you will need to pass both subjects during your apprenticeship otherwise you will not be able to qualify as a childcare practitioner.

Where would I work?

We have Childcare Centres in Cheadle, West Didsbury, Stockport, Macclesfield, Wythenshawe and Knutsford. Each year we take on up to ten apprentices at every Centre.

What will I ea?

If you have the GCSEs we need you will ea £5 per hour.  If you do not have the GCSEs we need, you will ea £3.87 per hour until you gain them.   A huge incentive to do the work while still at school to gain your Maths and English Language GCSEs!

Why choose us for your apprenticeship?

We believe you won’t nd a better company to work for in childcare.

We have a comprehensive training package to help you become a truly inspiring and outstanding childcare practitioner, with lots of support available to help you succeed.
