Playwork Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships in Playwork have been designed by the Sector Skills Council, Skills Active. These Apprenticeships serve to meet the "needs of employers for an expansion of access to training programmes and to widen recruitment into the playwork sector"

A Level 2 Foundation Apprenticeship is suitable for people who work in supervised settings and is the first building block of learning when committing to a career working within a playwork setting. Progressing on to Level 3 the requirements look for an individual who is operating more autonomously, undertaking play planning, and some aspects of supervision.
