Kickstart Your Early Years Career for FREE!

At Kindred Nurseries, we are dedicated to fostering the growth and development of both young children and aspiring educators. That’s why we, alongside our friends at Hawk Training, are excited to be partnering with The Skills Network for their Level 3 Early Years Educator Skills Bootcamp, designed to provide you with the foundational skills and knowledge needed to excel in early childhood education. This course is your gateway to a fulfilling and impactful career as an Early Years Educator Apprentice.

Who Is This Course For?

This Skills Bootcamp is tailored for individuals passionate about advancing their careers in Early Years Education. It is not suitable for those who do not wish to pursue an accelerated early years apprenticeship or are self-employed.

With the Government’s commitment to increasing free childcare hours starting in April 2024, there is a significant demand for qualified Early Years Educators. The Skills Network’s 12-week, government-funded online training program offers a solid foundation for a new career in childhood education and provides a fast-track route to an apprenticeship. By partnering with The Skills Network, we ensure that you are well-prepared to embark on your journey as an Early Years Educator Apprentice.
