Jenine Gill owner of Little Inspirations nurseries, with 55 staff under her guidance as well as being a mum of two, has herself completed a Higher Apprenticeship in Childcare and an Institute of Leadership and Management NVQ level 3 in Management. The organisation works with a local training provider to deliver courses in customer care, child care, essential skills, playwork and management training. As part of an outreach programme, apprentices go into the community to practise interview skills and talk in schools about careers in childcare.
More than 50 Little Inspirations staff have been through training which has led to a high level of continuity and very low staff turnover.
“All our training is measured and as staff complete programmes, we look for them to bring three ideas back into the nursery. Our commitment to training helps us retain and value staff who in return are motivated to learn and develop within the business,” Jenine Gill, Owner
