We are delighted to reveal that Kids Planet is in the top 25 Apprentice Employers in the UK, having been ranked 21st in the List of Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2022.
The first of two employers from the childcare sector to be featured, Kids Planet is a UK-wide group with 500 of our 3000 employees currently apprentices, at levels 2, 3 and 5.
Employers were scored on the following criteria: total apprentices employed, new apprentice starts in 2021-2022, diversity of new apprentices, and the progression of apprentices.
Gill Mason, Head of Training and Development, said:
“At Kids Planet, we have worked incredibly hard to develop a comprehensive programme for our apprentices to learn, develop and grow at Kids Planet and this recognition is testament to its success.
We want people to see early years as a career with clear development and progression routes and we are passionate about raising and professionalising the early years workforce at all levels.
Apprenticeships are a productive and effective way to nurture talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce, and have really helped us to achieve our aims.
Kids Planet strives to provide a quality programme that offers people a lifelong career within the early years sector and highlights our ongoing commitment to diversity, which ensures we continue to attract the best people.”
This achievement marks a real celebration of the commitment that the countries leading employers have made to employ apprentices in 2022. Congratulations to all involved.
