Job/Person Summary

We are seeking to appoint a motivated and enthusiastic Childcare Apprentice with a real desire to learn and a genuine interest in Early Years and Childcare. You will be expected to have a good level of spoken and written English and have a kind and open outlook on life. Ideally you will have GCSE grade 4 and above in Maths and English.

We are a diverse and unique setting in the heart of Southsea, committed to delivering excellent outcomes for all our children. This is a busy and varied role that will require you to attend to the physical needs of the children, fostering their development, independence and self-reliance. As an apprentice you will be expected to put the knowledge you learn from college into practice as well as develop practical skills through on the job training. The role will require stamina, professionalism and a real desire to learn and develop.

We are an extremely busy, loud and bustling nursery. We are not an easy option but we are prepared to put in extra help to support candidates with a real desire to achieve. The role is far from glamorous and incorporates more than just playing with children. Especially in light of COVID-19 there will be extra cleaning duties which all staff are expected to complete. We are near Fratton Station and on a main bus route. You will be expected to work across all age groups.

Socially distanced visits to the nursery are welcome; please contact the Business Manager on 023 9282 8606 to arrange this.

Completed application forms can be returned by hand to the School Office addressed to the Business Manager or by email to

Bramble Infant School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS Disclosure at Enhanced Level will be required prior to any offer of employment.
