From education to employment

New level 2 early years apprenticeship programme launched by Best Practice Network


Award winning training provider Best Practice Network has launched a new apprenticeship programme for early years staff.

The Level 2 Early Years Practitioner Apprenticeship will give schools and early years settings a way to fund professional development through the apprenticeship levy.

The programme is designed for someone already working in or looking for a career as an early years practitioner, nursery practitioner or classroom assistant. 

Recruitment for the online programme is now open, with monthly starts dependent on numbers.

Tracy Clement, Apprenticeships Director at Best Practice Network, said:

“This new programme is another key part of our plan to give early years settings access to a comprehensive choice of the highest quality professional development for their staff using a route that takes significant pressure off CPD budgets at a challenging time.”

Best Practice Network has an expanding apprenticeships division, which includes the Level 3 Early Years Educator Apprenticeship, launched in February 2021, and end-point assessment services for the School Business Professional Level 4 Apprenticeship.

Best Practice Network is one of the UK’s leading providers of training, development and support for education professionals and it is rated an “exceptional training provider” by the Department for Education.
