Illegal apprenticeship hours
Apprentice (Former Employee) – Hamilton, Leicestershire – 4 April 2018
Worked here for 7 weeks. Still no contract of employment or uniform by the time I left. I was supposed to be signed up for National Apprenticeship Scheme which is working min of 30 hrs weekly, however my weekly average was far less, sometimes 14.5 hrs during school holidays when less children in the nursery.
Typical day playing with children helping to feed them cleaning and clearing up.
Didn't learn anything
Management are two faced and weak ,with a high turnover of office staff, and with 40% of nursery staff apprentices. where pay is low and childcare charges high so a good profit being made, no care or thought for staff individual situations. Senior staff lazy.
Nice kids in the nursery some staff were nice.
Early starts late finishes. Poor hourly pay.
