Our Approach – Apprentices

As you consider your future following school, there are usually two options available to you – work or further education. At this formative time in your career either of these routes will have a major impact on your adult life, so it is critical that you make the right choices now. Your future depends on it!

Some people feel they want to continue their studies at this time, or just don't feel ready for work. Others are keen to develop their career straight away, especially considering the cost of further education and increasing competition for jobs.

Apprenticeships combines the two – blending vocational work experience within a learning framework. The result is that you emerge with a respected qualification plus that desirable attribute employers crave: relevant real-time experience, so you can hit the ground running. Find out more

Our Approach – Employers

Swift are a government funded vocational training and accreditation organisation specialising in the selecting, training, supporting and placing of hand-picked apprentices into the Child Care Industry. 

We have a dedicated Academy set up specifically for the training of the next generation of Nursery Nurses. We have developed a Virtual Nursery which facilitates a progressive learning environment.

If you are thinking of recruiting new staff, why not take advantage of the government-funded apprenticeship route? This is without doubt the most cost-effective way of recruiting well-qualified staff, hand-selected to your specification and trained to our standards. High value – low cost, and a great way of balancing recruitment, training and best practice! Find out more

"Childcare is not an easy option when considering a career and I have found through working with Swift the apprentices they supply are people who have a real passion to work with children and succeed. The apprentices at ABC Early Learning and Childcare reflect the high quality of training which Swift has to offer through their hard work, dedication and a conscientious attitude towards their work. Apprentices from Swift are all eager to learn and respond to advice and ideas offered to them from other members of the team in which they work."
