The Childcare Company

Working in partnership with De Montfort University, The Childcare Company offers students the opportunity to achieve the Children, Young People and Families  community pathway, level 4 apprenticeship standard which includes a level 4 Certificate in Higher Education (Cert HE). 

The Cert HE element of the apprenticeship has one year for completion, while the overall apprenticeship is an 18-month programme in total.

This apprenticeship is suitable for all roles that work with children, young people and families within a community based role. Students will be employed and be offered ‘off the job’ training time from their employer to support attendance at the Cert HE teaching workshops which are currently being held via Microsoft Teams due to the ongoing restrictions on travel and social distancing - this will be reviewed in January 2021.

The Level 4 Children, Young People and Families Practitioner within the community apprenticeship standard can be started at any point in the year while the Cert HE with DMU has 3 entry points: January, June and October. 

This is an exciting opportunity for community-based workers to undertake a specifically designed Certificate in Higher Education written and delivered by industry experts, preparing you, on successful completion, to continue on to a full sector relevant degree and in turn opening further career opportunities.

The Childcare Company, in partnership with DMU, look forward to helping you to achieve your goals.
