Busy Bees Education and Training started life over 24 years ago. Originally an internal training and recruitment department for the Busy Bees Group, we have been delivering apprenticeships since 2003. Due to the phenomenal success we achieved through our in-house offering with Busy Bees, in 2013 we now offer apprenticeships, endorsed courses and CPD to employers and professionals throughout the UK.

We are supporting school leavers during this difficult time who are unsure of what the future holds and their potential GCSE grades, by offering them a wide range of apprenticeships from Childcare, Adult Care to Catering and not forgetting our current learners, where we are providing reassurance around their current apprenticeship and Functional Skills exams.


Apprenticeships are transforming the way we learn, making further education more affordable and giving you the opportunity to gain real hands-on experience. If you are unable to access apprenticeship training, but still want to advance your vocational training we also offer stand-alone qualifications and diplomas.

CPD Courses:

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses are vital to help improve your staff’s knowledge and skills, as well as the quality of your service to customers. CPD also plays a key role in enhancing workforce retention and wellbeing, not to mention helping you meet Ofsted requirements. Visit to view our extensive range of courses available.

Our face-to-face courses are currently on hold at this time, however we are able to offer screen-to-screen courses, visit to contact us.


If you are looking for jobs in childcare, an exciting challenge, or your current career isn’t fulfilling you or going in the direction that you had hoped then why not consider working for the UK’s largest childcare provider. 

At Busy Bees we have a wide range of opportunities for careers in childcare to both challenge and fulfil your working life.

Often people think of nurseries as only offering job vacancies working with children, however due to the size of our organisation we are often looking for support staff, nursery administrators, accounting staff, managers and a whole host of other career skill sets.

No matter if you have worked in the childcare environment for many years, or are simply looking to start a new chapter in your career path we would encourage you to look at our vacancy listings and contact your local Busy Bees Nursery to see if we have any opportunities for you to come and join the team Visit to view our current job vacancies.
