At Emmy Jayne’s we are committed in ensuring our nursery practitioners are given every opportunity to improve their professional development whilst employed with us. We have a very supportive management team who work with practitioners to offer a variety of training courses to suit individual needs. Most of our training courses are offered by North Yorkshire County Council who provide a wide range of different opportunities throughout the year. We also bring in external professionals for In House training sessions, particularly at times of change or implementing new ideas and procedures.
Diplomas and Apprenticeships
Training to Level 2 and 3 is offered to all nursery practitioners, and we use a locally based training provider to deliver this. These are work-based apprenticeships, allowing staff to gain valuable experience whilst working towards the qualification, at their own pace. Practitioners will be supported throughout, and assessed on their knowledge, understanding and practical skills by an assessor, who ensures all work reaches required competence levels and offers feedback on what they observe.
In order to support local colleges and training providers, we sometimes take on students, on long or short term placements However, to maintain quality of care and ensure our high standards are never compromised, all students undertake an interview by the management team. Students who are taken on are closely supervised and never counted in the ratios when organising staff rotas. Their placement will be terminated should we feel they are unsuitable to continue for any reason.
We are currently recruiting for full and part time practitioners. Please contact Nursery Directors Amy or Emma for more information, and an informal discussion about the employment opportunities currently available.
