Eurosource help dozens of apprentices enter childcare with East Midlands nursery group

An expanding East Midlands children’s nursery group has developed its workforce with more than two dozen apprentices in the last 18 months, thanks to help from Eurosource Solutions.

Eurosource, part of the BCTG Group, specialises in the childcare sector and has trained as many as 25 apprentices across four White House Nursery group sites in Derbyshire since September 2019.

This has included ten apprentices at the White House Nursery in Oakwood, six at its Alvaston nursery, another six at its Borrowash site and three in Alfreton.

Thirteen of these apprentices have since completed their courses and have continued to develop their careers either at White House Nursery or elsewhere, with another 12 apprentices still completing their programmes.

Julie Smith, Quality and Development Manager at the White House Nursery group, said: “As a fast-expanding business, it’s been crucial for us to find and develop the right candidates for our frontline childcare roles.

“We have high quality demands for our staff dealing with children and using the services of a specialist provider like Eurosource gives us confidence that we are recruiting and training the best people.”

Eurosource Solutions, based in Staffordshire, was set up in 1989 and has become widely recognised as best UK providers for training and development in the childcare and healthcare sector.

Rachel Dawson, business development officer at Eurosource Solutions, said: “We’re so pleased to have such a good relationship with the White House Nursery Group, where we know the apprentices will receive high quality training.

“We’re thrilled that so many of our apprentices have since qualified and are now excelling in their careers with White House or elsewhere in childcare.”

She added: “We’re passionate about the development of both individuals and organisations, and pride ourselves in delivering quality development solutions and support that adds measurable value for organisations.”
