About the workshops:
These short workshops are designed to provide an opportunity for professional development for all practitioners in the setting. The benefits of training within the setting mean that practitioners have an opportunity to work together in the context of the environment and resources that are used by children on a day to day basis. The workshops can be delivered at a time that is suitable for your setting. Settings with multiple locations may join together in one venue if that is more convenient. Childminders may wish to join together with other childminders if a suitable venue can be sourced (we are happy to hold training in a childminder’s home), or alternatively may wish to ask a local setting if they can join their training session.
The minimum number for a workshop is 5 people.
Workshops currently available:
- Child-initiated learning
- Communication, language and literacy development
- Learning, playing and interacting
- Marvellous maths
- Prime areas*
- Teaching in early years
*Please note there is an additional charge of £12.50 for the Prime areas workshop as this requires a preparatory visit to the setting prior to delivery.
If there is a specific workshop you would like us to develop, please contact the early years team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
