Hi all,

I've searched for an up to date thread on this subject but haven't found anything useful.

We have an apprentice starting with us this term; she was our student placement last year and was fab; reliable, keen to learn and listened well, the children and parents really took to her and she fitted in very well into our little team.


Does anyone have any tips for me? Either from an apprentice or manager point of view?

thanks in anticipation!

well done on finding a good apprentice, we had 2 who eventually became staff members as posts arose.


We really treated them as a full team member from the start, they were given induction etc and then assisted or shadowed a member of staff until we felt they were competent to take on the particular role, once we were happy they then completed the role with a little supervision before 'letting them go' .


they did all jobs in the setting , building up to small group times, and large story groups once they had become confident enough in the role.


We ensured they were aware that we were also there to help/explain course work etc. and ensured they had time to do any observations etc.


We found it a valuable experience for all
