High-quality training for childcare and
Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances. An excellent educational experience – from early years through to leaving school or college – is essential for that to happen.
At Orange Moon Training, we’ve made it our mission to make that possible.
We provide specialist training to childcare and education support practitioners to raise standards, improve skills, ensure best practice and give them the best platform to develop their careers. We also provide inspiration and enable their passion to shine and reflect their light onto the children they work with.
It means children benefit from better role models with a higher level of skills, knowledge and expertise, to help them flourish and thrive. We’ve been providing Government-approved training programmes to practitioners working in nurseries, pre-schools and schools, as well as home-based childminders since 2010.
Our delivery team comprises sector specialists with many years’ experience working as childminders, headteachers, teachers, teaching assistants, nursery managers, nursery practitioners and NLEs. We are approved to deliver internationally recognised qualifications from Level 1 to Level 5, along with Government-funded training programmes including apprenticeships and traineeships.

help children succeed."
Orange Moon Training Academy
If you’re looking to enter the childcare or education sector after leaving school, returning to work or changing careers, our Training Academy Programme can equip you with the skills you need to make a start.
It’s designed to introduce you to the world of working with children in childcare and education support settings and help you to make an informed career choice about if this is the right sector for you, and which of the many career options working with children would be the one that excites you the most.
And if you’re an employer looking to fill your vacancies, we can create an academy so you can ‘grow your own’ employees and equip candidates with the basic training they need to start their career with your organisation.
Candidates enrol on a volunteer basis, giving you the opportunity to assess their commitment, academic and practical abilities for an extended period before committing to employment, including an apprenticeship.
Our Apprenticeship Programme
We offer a wide range of accredited childcare and education support apprenticeships to equip new staff with the skills they need to develop their careers.
We work closely with both apprentices and their employers to provide bespoke programmes that meet the individual’s and the organisation’s needs.
Our apprenticeships can be tailored to your organisational needs to reflect the profile, socio-economic climates and developmental targets of the children you work with. This will ensure your team is equipped with the skills and experience they need to help every child you work with to flourish.
Upskilling your team
As well as training new apprentices, we can also utilise apprenticeship programmes to help you upskill and develop your existing staff, to meet your current and future skills needs.
Alongside apprenticeship funding, there are other funding sources available to support your ongoing staff continuous personal development (CPD) programmes, depending on eligibility.
We can work with you to assess your requirements and create a bespoke CPD programme to meet your specific needs.
Where funding is not available, we have a variety of private payment arrangements to suit your organisation and help you access the training you need.
