Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an apprenticeship and a standard qualification?

An apprenticeship covers additional work skills beyond the standard childcare qualifications. The skills and knowledge gained from an apprenticeship can be transferred into any professional sector, providing a better scope for career progression.

I work full time. Will I still find time to study?

Yes. We offer flexible e-learning solutions that allow you to fit study around work and social commitments. You’ll also have access to online training resources and full support from your assessor, providing an ideal approach for you to gain your qualification.

How does an e-learning course differ from traditional paper methods?

With e-learning, you have complete flexibility over how you learn. Both options consist of the same level of work, however, you may receive quicker feedback on assignments through e-learning due to the submissions being received instantly via email. E-learning also fits flexibly around work and social commitments, as the e-learning platform can be accessed quickly and easily from the comfort of your home.

Will my course be funded?

The majority of our courses are fully funded and most of our learners don’t pay a penny for their training. However, this isn’t certain and the amount varies depending on applicable funding streams. A training adviser will talk you through your funding application during the course registration process.

How much will my course cost if i'm not eligible for funding?

The cost depends on the qualification applied for and your local authority. If you wish to find out how much your course may cost without funding, please call 0800 002 9242.

How often does the assessor visit my setting?

On average, the assessor will visit your setting every eight to ten weeks.

What Our Customers Say…

Throughout my whole course I have received all the assistance and the support that I needed to accomplish it successfully. This is largely thanks to my tutor Tina who has always been here for me. She always answered my questions straight away and made all of the learning so much more interesting… Even when she was moving and that I was waiting for my new tutor to contact me Tina kept on looking after me, marking my assignment and encouraging me in my progress… Thank you so much for everything.

Tina Butler is a very competent assessor who supports her candidates to the end of their course. Giving them extra help if needed and getting to know them and what is needed from each candidate. A caring professional.

I have recently passed my Level 3 Diploma for the Children’s Workplace EYE (RQF). I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Jeanette Arnold for her calm and relaxed manner in which she guided me through the course. I found it challenging during these extraordinary times, obviously during COVID-19, I was unable to be taught face to face, but with the professionalism, clarity and well laid out tasks of Jeanette, I managed to get through. Whenever I spoke to Jeanette for queries, I felt confident and at ease, which you will see from my feedback recordings. Again, many thanks to Parenta, but especially Jeanette, who is a true asset to your company in these very unprecedented and difficult times.

Katie was wonderful, the support and encouragement I got was fantastic.

Great service! Pippa is an amazing hard working assessor and needs more recognition and a pay rise for the amount of work load she has put on her.

Linda was honestly the most helpful assessor – she understood the way I learn and am able to complete assignments and was always available for any help or assistance! She was so warm natured and honestly cared about my course and progress. Couldn’t thank her enough, I feel like without her help I would have fallen really far behind.

Linda was my saviour! She gave me support throughout and if I had any questions, she was always there at the end of the phone or an email. Nothing was too much for Linda and with her help and support, I am now level 3 qualified.

I think Fiona was incredible! I have only great things to say about her, she helped me to achieve the most in the quickest time and I’m over the moon! I never thought I’d be able to do it but with Fiona’s support I achieved everything I thought I wouldn’t!
