Childcare Training Courses Frequently Asked Questions

A childcare apprenticeship provides you with practical work experience, professional development, and industry recognition. It offers hands-on training, enhances your skills and knowledge, and demonstrates your commitment to positive outcomes for the children in your care – opening doors for career advancement opportunities.

The amount of early years funding you can receive depends on the type of organisation, where you are located and what childcare qualification you are applying for. For example, non-Levy organisations can receive up to 95% of the cost in government-funding, meaning the employer is only responsible for the remaining 5%. For more information, visit here.

Continuous staff training in childcare ensures child safety, supports children’s growth and learning, and equips staff with behaviour management strategies and enhances their knowledge – all of which will help increase positive outcomes for the children in your care.

Parenta is a leading training provider in the Early Years sector. We support thousands of learners completing their childcare qualifications across the country every year, by providing innovative learning resources and tutor support. Our objective is to get you qualified in a way that suits you.

There are two ways to register your interest in starting a course with Parenta. Either complete the form on an individual course page or call 0800 002 9242 to speak with one of our friendly training advisers.

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 tutor, providing an ideal approach for you to gain your qualification.

The work involved varies depending on each individual course. You will be assigned your own tutor to support you throughout your qualification. However, you may be required to do some independent learning.

On average, the tutor will visit your setting every 8 to 10 weeks.

All our tutors are contactable via our head office address, their mobile phone or e-mail address, the information you’ll be provided with during the enrolment process. You can also use our online learning platform to contact your tutor at any time during your course.

This depends on your chosen qualification - it can vary from 6 months to 25 months, longer if you are studying part-time. Please see your desired course page for further information.

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 guaranteed, and the amount varies depending on applicable funding streams. A training adviser will talk you through your funding application during the course registration process.

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.

Yes. All childcare courses are accredited and therefore recognised by Ofsted.

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. To hear about the full benefits of completing an apprenticeship, please call 0800 002 9242.
