ONE DAY CPD COURSES


 

We’re opening up 15 ‘virtual’ places on each of the below CPD days for early years practitioners to join the sessions. Pitched at the level of our ITT students, these CPD sessions will be suitable as part of NQT support and for all current early years practitioners wishing to develop further their area-specific knowledge and practice.

All of our CPD days recognise different early years and school contexts and all tutors adopt topics in a flexible manner. The days will include links to current policy, theory and practice and each session will consist of a lecture element, live group work and discussions. We will be also signposting to further reading and learning opportunities for those who wish to develop their knowledge after the event.


All course materials will be provided.


On completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

All CPD Days are held virtually via Zoom between 10 AM and and 3 PM.
