A Manchester teenager has been shortlisted for a prestigious national apprentice award.
Molly McGlaulin - an apprentice at Cherubs Private Day Nursery in Sale - could be named ‘Nursery Apprentice of the Year’ by Nursery Management Today Magazine.
Apprentices from all over the UK were entered into the NMT Awards category with just 5 making it to the shortlist.
17-year-old Molly will now have to travel to London to meet a panel of judges, who will decide who is to be named the UK’s best nursery apprentice.
The teenager from Baguley - who is currently studying for her Level 2 Childcare NVQ - has been an apprentice at Cherubs Private Day Nursery for the last year.
Molly, a former student of Sale High School, said:“I’ve always known that I wanted to work with children, ever since I was little.
"One of my favourite subjects at school was Health and Social Care and I particularly enjoyed the child development element.
“I’ve absolutely loved being an apprentice at Cherubs and can feel my confidence growing all the time. Providing a fun, stimulating environment for children is so rewarding and I’m lucky to be able to do it within a supportive team.”
Molly will find out if she has won the award at a glittering ceremony hosted by celebrity presenter Ben Fogle at the London Hilton Metropole on 25th November.
Cherubs Nursery Manager Samantha Malan said: “We put Molly forward for the award because she has become a valuable member of the Cherubs team and is on her way to becoming an outstanding Childcare Practitioner.
“Molly has made it clear that her priority is providing children with the best possible care and education, and because of that she fits in at Cherubs perfectly.
“We have our fingers crossed that she will win but even if she doesn’t come away with an award we’re incredibly proud that she has made it this far”
