Case Study: Ross's Modern Apprenticeship in Early Years and Childcare


Ross wanted a change in career. He considered the childcare sector and thought it would be a rewarding opportunity. The sector is growing and has lots of opportunities and as a male he believed he would bring something different to the role.

My favourite thing about working in the nursery is seeing how happy you can make the children and how rewarding it is.

The Modern Apprenticeship

Ross successfully applied for a Modern Apprenticeship within an East Renfrewshire Council nursery. He has found working there to be a rewarding experience because he can make the children happy. He hopes to progress onto a Child Development Officer after he completes his Modern Apprenticeship.
