Whether you’re leading or managing early years provision in a school or a PVI setting, Early Education offers you cost effective opportunities to support the development of your staff and stay informed.

CPD includes local branch events and national training and events, bespoke consultancy and training from our Associates and opportunities for professional development and networking with other early years leaders and managers.  

We also provide a national voice raising concerns on your behalf about early years policy and funding.

Being a member gives you and your team:

  • budget-friendly options for specialist early years CPD through national and local events and online training
  • time-saving fortnightly bulletins that cover all the developments you need to know including regulatory changes, new research, reports and resources, and opportunities for getting engaged with our campaigns
  • online resources and our termly Journal to support all aspects of early years practice
Current cost and discounts for online learning has allowed my staff to access training they wouldn't otherwise be able to. They are coming in with new ideas and areas for discussion.
