Early Years business owners – Future proof your business

Future proof your business – an unique opportunity for aspiring Early Years managers in your teams.

We are excited to launch our latest project to help London based Early Years employers retain and train their staff.

Working with the Mayor of London and European Social Fund the primary objective of this project to help employers retain and invest in their future managers by offering, for free, the Level 4 Certificate for the Early Years Advanced Practitioner qualification – eligibility criteria applies, see below.

Professional Training Solutions are a private training provider who specialise in delivering training to the Early Years sector and we are proud to be part of a dedicated project to offer further education to Early Years Practitioners, specifically within the London region.   We have a limited amount of funding to propel already qualified Level 3 Early Years Practitioners through the Level 4 Certificate for the Early Years Advanced Practitioner – priming them for future management roles.

This is a win-win opportunity – employers benefit from the project by being given the opportunity to develop and invest in their staff without it affecting their training budget and for current Level 3 practitioners it presents a myriad of opportunities –  promotion into management or specialised roles, to continue to a Level 5 apprenticeship and, perhaps the most important thing right now, increased pay.

The following eligibility criteria applies for learners:

  • be aged 18 or over
  • Participants must live in the GLA Region (reside in and have a London Postcode).
  • Participants must have a Level 3 Early Years Educator qualification (or equivalent) to undertake the Level 4.
  • Participants cannot have higher than a Level 3 qualification.
  • Participants must be earning less than the London Living Wage of £11.05 per hour.
