Current Employment Status – Tiny Tots Academy Early Years Modern Apprentice
I am currently undertaking a Childcare Modern Apprenticeship with ‘TIGERS’ (who are an Early Years training provider) while being employed within Tiny Tots Academy in Airdrie. I started my Modern Apprenticeship in October 2015 which is ‘Social Services Children and Young People Level 3’. This qualification will enable me to become a fully qualified Early Years Practitioner and be competent to care and support children in early years.
I chose to gain my qualification through the apprenticeship route as I wanted to gain practical experience as well as learning and gaining the knowledge that I needed to further my career in the Early Years industry. Choosing this route means I am able to earn money as whilst learning and gaining a recognised qualification in early years. TIGERS and my Assessor have been really helpful to me they have supported me through even when it seemed difficult, without TIGERS I probably would not be in the job that I am today as they believe in my abilities to achieve my career goals and become an Early Years Practitioner.
