Men in Childcare

MEN IN CHILDCARE – together we’re helping to build a gender-diverse workforce!

Are you a male who has lost a job or changed working patterns or aspirations during the Covid -19 crisis?

Or, perhaps you are a male student in Year 11 looking to start an Apprenticeship?

If so, we want to hear from you! 

We are currently working with GMCA and MITEY to prepare for, recruit and support a cohort of 12 men in Greater Manchester through our in-house Early Years (Level 2) Apprenticeship across our 79 Kids Planet settings.

The 12 male apprentices will work in pairs in six settings, with opportunities for male-only networking and mutual support via group training. You will be under the supervision of Jason Holmes, a Tutor/Assessor at Kids Planet Training Academy who takes on the lead role of recruiting, retaining and training the 12 male apprentices.

We are currently recruiting for our first intake of male Apprentices NOW.
