Last chance to become the Early Years Apprentice of the Year

Tomorrow, 17th of May, is your last opportunity to submit someone you feel should be the Nursery World Early Years Apprentice of the Year.  

We are very proud to be sponsoring this reward, as we feel it is important to acknowledge and support best practice from the Early Years workforce of the future. But, as we mentioned last time, there are thousands of you doing a marvelous job, especially after the last two years, and you all deserve an award!  

The link for the application can be found here

While you are on that page look at the other awards (all listed below), and if you feel you meet or exceed the criteria, put your name forward. As the old expression goes you’ve got to be in it to win it.
