A provider of 1,500 childcare, management and catering apprentices has been recognised for its commitment to training and skills development with a Princess Royal Training Award.
Busy Bees Training was one of only 40 recipients, including Barclays and Waitrose, to be presented with the award by HRH The Princess Royal at a ceremony which took place at St James’s Palace on 2 November 2017.
The award completes a hat-trick of 2017 successes for Busy Bees Training: in February the organisation achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted and recently beat off almost 800 entrants to become a finalist at the North West National Apprenticeship Awards 2017.
“We’ve had an amazing year so far and the future is looking extremely bright,” said Fay Gibbin, training manager at Busy Bees Training. “These commendations prove all our hard work has been worthwhile.
“To be one of 40 companies in the UK to be commended by Princess Anne only a short while after joining the elite group of ‘outstanding’ training providers shows how far we’ve come since delivering our very first apprenticeship programme nearly 15 years ago.”

Busy Bees Training Academy currently oversees over 1,500 childcare, management and catering apprenticeships, as well as 20 short courses delivered at each of its 12 venues throughout the country.
Childcare Apprenticeships currently available are: The Children and Young People’s Workforce apprenticeship programme Level 2 and 3 NVQ, Level 2 being open to school leavers age 16 and over who have a passion for working with children and wish to become Assistant Early Years Educators and Level 3 leaning more towards more experienced staff who aim to progress to a more responsible position as Qualified Early Years Educators and Room Managers.
The Level 3 Management Apprenticeship, also a nationally accredited NVQ, is undertaken by existing Room Managers and often leads on to further progression within the company into more varied roles such as Nursery Managers, Health & Safety Officers or Training Assessors, able to pass on the training themselves to the next apprentices.
Busy Bees provides quality support and training to all its staff on a continual basis, helping to improve individuals’ own technical and organisational skills to provide the overall service that every parent looks for when seeking out a place of security and care to send their children.
