Meet our May winner...

Congratulations to Lower Covey Montessori Nursery in Yetminster and Pear Tree Nursery in Sherborne, on becoming the latest winner of our Apprenticeship Employer of the Month award.

Lower Covey and Pear Tree are owned and managed by Julie Partridge, who has been working with us for nearly 10 years. Staff work between the two nurseries, and they currently have a Level 3 apprentice who is achieving her qualifications, and two Level 2 apprentices progressing to Level 3. The nurseries are very committed to apprenticeships and supporting all their staff with a high level of training.

They are also currently recruiting for two further apprentices.

Penny Smillie, Senior Account Manager at SS&L says, “Set in a beautiful environment and incorporating the Montessori method into the care and education they provide, these nurseries are always a pleasure to visit. They are keen to discuss training needs and to help recruit new apprentices to start a career in early years.”

Congratulations to everyone involved and we look forward to continuing to work together!

If you think an apprenticeship could be for you, we have many vacancies. Or if you’re an employer, thinking about tapping into the talent in Somerset with an apprentice or keen to offer your staff training and development, give us a call on 0330 332 7997 to discuss how we can help you.
