Nishkam Nursery welcomes the chance to encourage training. We accept student placements and recognise this as an opportunity to examine and revise our own practice. We have forged close bonds with local colleges, universities and agencies that send students to us to work at the nursery on placement, helping with their training and work experience. The assistant manager (Japjit Kaur Pnaiser) is responsible for student liaison and helping the nursery and student to get the best use of each other.
It is vital that students are thoroughly supervised, are made to feel part of the team and participate fully in every other aspect of the nursery day.
STUDENTS MUST NEVER:
ENHANCED DBS CHECKS
All students will have suitability checks conducted in the same way as paid employees. This will include an enhanced DBS check. These checks will be conducted before any volunteer starts their time within the nursery and this will also include two written references.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Students are expected to comply with all the nursery’s policies and procedures.
Students are likely to become aware of confidential information within the nursery either about the children, its staff and parents. Students should not disclose this information and should follow the nursery confidentiality procedure at all times.
STUDENT’S INDUCTION PACK
On commencing their placement, the student will be given a pack containing:
No student will be left with children alone at any time.
NB: The setting has the right to refuse entry to any individual should any of the above be compromised in any way.
