Grandir UK Moves to Realise for Training Provision

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Realise as our new principal training provider. The decision to move our apprenticeship delivery to Realise has been made to offer learners greater consistency and quality in their development.

Grandir UK currently has 83 apprentices taking on a combination of Level 2, 3 and 5 Early Years apprenticeships. Realise will deliver the vast majority of the training and is also aiming to support other areas of the business through a Level 3 Early Years Business Administration apprenticeship.

Teresa Brooke, Head of Early Years & Education at Grandir UK, said:

“We are delighted to have appointed Realise as our main training provider across all the apprenticeships we offer. Realise will start working with most of our apprentices immediately and we are hoping to grow that number in the months to come.”

“We have appointed Realise for consistency and quality. I have worked with Realise before so I know the level of detail they go into.”

“As well as delivering an outstanding learner experience, they also support the employer by providing really good data so you can follow each learner’s progress.”

“Realise will also work with us in upskilling the workforce through webinars and seminars, which you just don’t get with other providers.”

“I’m very passionate about apprenticeships and I’m excited to have partnered with Realise.”

Karen Derbyshire, Head of Early Years at Realise, said:

“This is a fantastic new partnership and one we are very much looking forward to working on.”

“Grandir UK is enjoying rapid expansion and is committed to supporting families with the highest quality of care.”

“The Realise philosophy is ‘right learner, right programme’. As such, our teams are currently undertaking field visits across all Grandir UK settings to ensure we can individualise their programmes of learning.”

“Ultimately, our main aim is to produce fantastic early years practitioners for Grandir UK, which is exactly what the sector desperately needs at the moment.”

Our apprenticeships offer first-hand experience of nursery life working alongside some of the best in the industry who will support you to develop the skills and knowledge to play a key role in the success of one of our nurseries.
