I am enjoying learning childcare alongside swift as there is plenty of professional yet friendly support.


An amazing learning opportunity and it provides hands on outside of classroom experience


If I had any improvements I would name them, but my experience has been good which I'm so grateful for. I was so nervous, but you've made me feel very welcomed, and I'm so grateful to have come across SWIFT.


Swift Childcare Apprenticeship has given me a fantastic opportunity to study and complete a level 3 qualification at the end of the year with hands on experience with children, which has enhanced my motivation and made me eager to work with children.

I am very supported to do well and pushed to do my very best.


I find that Swift has the best cohort of students coming through, the support they provide the students, the communication they have with ourselves really makes a difference.


An amazing learning opportunity and it provides hands on outside of classroom experience.


The staff have been really helpful, I have learnt a lot about the children's behaviours now that I've had experience having them for such a long period of time and how to react in situations. I have really enjoyed bonding with the children and helping them with their learning.

Thanks to the great team at Swift. I know exactly where to go if I need support not just with the course but also personal concerns!


Our nurseries across Birmingham and the West Midlands will be benefitting from these skills.

I think that Swift deserves to win Training Provider of the Year due to the fact that throughout my learning experience with Swift I have been provided with a immersive amount of support and advice from each and every staff member.


A huge thanks to everyone at Swift that has helped me over the past few years! I can't explain how grateful I am to have worked with you all, you've been nothing but kind and welcoming and always helped me when I have needed it. 


All the students we get from you are so on the ball, this comes from your expectations as a company


I am delighted to tell you that I have been promoted as team leader when I complete my level 2. All the knowledge I have gained from this apprenticeship has played a huge part in this achievement.

My experience with SWIFT so far has been amazing. The staff are very very friendly and helpful and are willing to do whatever they can to get you to a position were your happy first. I was told everything I needed to know and the steps they would take to get you to the right place. 

Childcare Apprentice Level 3

Swift has helped to encourage me to become much stronger and confident as an individual as well as pushing me with each opportunity that they have to become a better person.


As far as a training provider they really have the complete package.


My apprenticeship has supported me by guiding me with a career path.


I have settled into my setting really well and I have gotten along with all the staff members there. I have learnt how to use ‘Blossom’ to update the parents and add pictures of things the children are doing. I have enjoyed feeding the children and getting to know them so that they can be used to me and get along with me well.
