Mature (40) mum looking to career change.
In a nursery.
I have qualifications but not an early years one. I know they offer 16-24 apprenticeships (training whilst working)
Wondering if anyone could give me Info on mature training whilst working. I'm willing to pay for the training but obviously need to work at the same time, preferably in a nursery.

You can usually train in house while working. Takes approx 18mths to complete a level 3. I did my level 3 qualification while working and I was 39 when I started it and hadn't worked in early years before.

Im 49 and have just started volunteering in a school nursery, i'm not sure where it will lead, but I possibly might apply for a job there at some point and do on the job qualifications.
