About Birmingham Branch
Birmingham branch supports all those working in early childhood education in Birmingham as well as colleagues from neighbouring areas. Information is sent by email to all primary schools, nursery schools/centres as well as private, voluntary and independent early education settings for whom we have contact details. Members receive information by post.
The branch meets approximately 5 times a year. Twice in the autumn and spring terms and once in the summer term. We generally have outside speakers but also run sessions delivered by our own members with particular specialist knowledge. Meetings are held in schools and settings around the city.
Our events this year include:
15.02.17 - Mind the Gap: Using the Early Years Pupil Premium Effectively - with Helen Moylett
Our previous events include sessions on:
