Day care childcare and nursery provider Busy Bees has unveiled plans to increase the number of apprenticeship places available to school leavers aged 16-18 years of age from July.

Amid rising demand for early years childcare, the firm which has centres across the country including Norwich, is extending its apprenticeship programme within its nurseries to more than 300 taking the total number of employees on apprenticeships to more than 700 within its 7,500 workforce.

Training Manager Fay Gibbin said: “We firmly believe that employing young people with the right attitude and personality and training them in-house where they learn about our own values and discover what ‘delivering quality childcare’ actually means, ensures that we have a constant pool of highly trained staff who can deliver exceptional childcare at every stage of their career – meeting, and in most cases exceeding, the highest standards that we expect in any of our Busy Bees nurseries.”
