Local authority early years teams

We work closely with local authority early years teams across the country, many of whom commission our Associates to deliver conference and training sessions, quality improvement support, projects and service reviews.

Some local authority EY teams work with their local Early Education volunteer-run branch to enhance the availability of low-cost, high quality CPD. Many local authorities signpost our online resources in their newsletters and from their own websites.

Access professional updating opportunities through our events as well as opportunities for networking with a wide range of early years colleagues across the UK.

  • discounts on the cost of events and publications

The Early Years Quality Improvement team continue to receive positive feedback from delegates who attend the training commisioned, the knowledge gained also helps to elevate the level of support given to children within the Early Years settings in our borough.
