West Cornforth Primary School is looking to recruit an Early Years Apprentice, to achieve CACHE Level 2, who will have responsibility to provide wide ranging support to all members of the 2 and 3 year old nurseries.

We are looking for someone with a ‘can do’ attitude, a team player, with good communication skills both verbal and written.
