River View Day Nursery celebrate National Apprenticeship Week

The spotlight was on prospective practitioners from River View Day Nursery in Hertford as they were celebrated by proud colleagues as part of ‘National Apprenticeship Week’ festivities at the award-winning setting.

As well as being shown appreciation with a range of treats including flowers and doughnuts, the group of four Apprentices; Rachel Savage, Abi Parrott, Millan Fearon and Chelsea Heppenstall-Ward, are also being offered permanent jobs if they successfully complete the bespoke Childbase Partnership training programme, which is designed to give them lasting careers at the company.

The group are not only benefitting from increased study time away from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on North Road, but also a full range of new training opportunities. This is following in the footsteps of other former apprentices at the nursery who are now qualified practitioners with ‘Key Person’ responsibilities.

River View Deputy to Area Manager, Tasha Boon explained;

“Our Apprentices are an integral part of the team at River View and it has been wonderful to watch their confidence grow both personally and professionally with the support of our training and mentoring programmes. We want them to be ambitious about their careers with us and know that managing their own Ofsted-rated Outstanding setting is entirely within their grasp.”

Head of Childbase Training Academy of Excellence, June Sadler explained;

“All the hard work of our Apprentices is really paying off and they have been a great support to our children and families, especially during the lockdown periods. We are now very excited as we open our own Childbase Training Academy of Excellence and recruit our first cohort of 44 learners on to the Early Years Standards.”

The Childbase Training Academy of Excellence opened in January 2021. If you are looking to start an Apprenticeship please contact the recruitment team on
