Pru Barwood, Learning and Development Lead at Fennies Nurseries, said: “Apprenticeships are a crucial part of our people strategy and increasingly vital for the success of early years settings.
“We’ve had a long-term relationship with a training provider but felt the time was right for a change.
“The positive reputation of Realise is growing quickly in the early years sector and it is very clear that our values are aligned.
“Realise is a very forward-thinking organisation and always looking to offer additional value to settings, particularly through the vast range of webinars and CPD platforms it can access.
“The coverage of trainer assessors Realise has across the country was another huge attraction and we felt it was th best provider to take our apprenticeship offering to the next level and ensure we continue to give children aged under five, the best start.”
Fennies is due to open new nurseries in Reading, Twickenham and Whitton in the coming months.
