Careers Advisors - How you can support the campaign

We all recognise that providing the inquiring minds of today's youth with guidance, new experiences and opportunities is not only important to their professional development but it's also paramount to building the committed and qualified workforces of tomorrow.


Tinies Childcare are in a unique position to raise awareness of the large number of opportunities for employment in the childcare industry and would welcome the opportunity to work with Careers Advisors from both the private and public sector to help put young people on the pathway to success.

We feel it would be particularly useful to engage with students in Year 8 and Year 9 and the respective years for students in Scotland, to make them aware of the opportunities that exist in the childcare industry before they take their final study options and to this end would like to explore with you some ways in which we can work in partnership to raise awareness of a career in the industry.  For example through our established nursery and nanny contacts we could seek volunteers support to attend careers events or occupational health talks, so that students may hear at first hand about the rewards and demands of working in the industry.

Each of our branches will have a customised "Why Work In Childcare" leaflet for their area to promote the benefits of working in childcare to students in this age group. You can also download web banners for your career portals and posters, from our campaign marketing page, to raise awareness of the campaign and job opportunities that exist once students are qualified.

In addition, as part of the campaign Tinies Childcare have teamed up with the Education and Employers Charity. In consultation with teachers and business leaders, the charity designed the Inspiring The Future volunteering platform to enable schools to connect pupils with employee volunteers. In England alone, over 80% of secondary schools have registered and are able to contact locally registered volunteers directly by email and for free. Over 35,000 volunteers have registered nationally, from apprentices to CEOs, and within a diverse range of sectors - from archaeology to zoology, so schools you work with should be in a position to start connecting with volunteers that are starting to sign up from the Early Years sector.

If you are planning a careers event or looking for support, simply email us with your contact details and postcode and your local branch will be in touch.

Tinies are also looking to offer a number of work experience opportunities to young people both within our own Tinies Operational Settings and some of our larger Tinies Recruitment agencies.  We are hoping to encourage more nursery settings to offer work experience opportunities to students.

As outlined, a career in childcare suits young people who are caring and passionate about making a difference to the world they live in. We have a variety of resources available to us across our network and around our core business, so we would like to work with you to identify select events or opportunities where we could start to make a difference too.
