Apprenticeship placements

Whether or not you’re certain that you want a career in childcare, we can arrange for you to do one of our “taster days” before embarking on an Apprenticeship programme. You would be welcomed into one of Puffins of Exeter'nurseries, where you would spend the day shadowing one of their experienced staff. You can decide at the end of the day whether or not to apply for one of our training placements.
Puffins of Exeter has 5 nurseries in and around Exeter, all rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted. If you are considering a career in childcare, why not come along to one of our recruitment open days?
