Through their BAPN membership, nannies will have access to the complete programme at discounted prices. Taking advantage of the training provided by BB Training Academy will also present nannies with the opportunity to further demonstrate their professionalism to the parents of the children they care for.
Tricia Pritchard, Managing Director of BAPN, said: “This training programme is open to all BAPN nannies across the UK and we’re hopeful our nannies will take the opportunity to update their training and gain new skills. Our aim is to enable nannies through opportunities like this, to gain the professional recognition they deserve. We share and admire the vision of BB Training Academy, which is to strive to help learners to succeed with the support of highly skilled training officers with extensive and current sector experience. The bespoke training aims to develop learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviours that we know employers within the sector are looking for from their employees”.
Sandy Silvester, Director of Learning and Development at BB Training Academy, said: “As with all childcare professionals and people who work with children, it is really important for nannies to complete ongoing training to ensure their skills, learning and behaviours are in line with the latest research and best practice. This helps them to continue to drive quality and provide outstanding care in the sector.
“Our new partnership with BAPN lets us support its members with their continued professional development and provide them with access to training that can develop them in areas that include safeguarding, behaviour management, preparing for Ofsted and many more.”
