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.

During my two years of being with Parenta my experience has been phenomenal. Having Dawn Fryer as a tutor was the best thing I could have asked for, as she helped me through struggles that no one could have helped with. She also supported me with other issues outside of work and helped me with my course when I needed it. I couldn’t have chosen a better company and tutor to complete my qualifications. Thank you for everything.

I have really enjoyed this course after initially being very concerned about whether it would happen.  Full credit to April who has been brilliant – Thank you.

This is the second BTEC I have taken through Parenta and have had the same tutor both times. Her support has been incredible - she has always gone over and above to help me. It has been a joy to work with her, she is a credit to your company.
