Little Inspirations

The Welsh Government’s Apprenticeship Programme has been integral to the successful growth of Little Inspirations, a multi-award-winning South Wales childcare provider. Since forming 20 years ago, the Pontyclun-based company has grown from one to nine settings and now has a workforce of 123. Childcare facilities are provided for more than 400 families daily across Rhondda Cynon Taff, Vale of Glamorgan, Newport and Merthyr Tydfil.

The company currently has 20 apprentices, having employed 39 over the past 17 years and staff retention is well above the industry average. 

Training provider Educ8 Training works closely with Little Inspirations to deliver apprenticeships from Level 2 to 5 in Children’s Care, Play, Learning and Development Professional Practice, Play Work, Management, Customer Service and Leadership and Management.
