These bite-size training units are each based on an area of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, to ensure that you know how to meet the standards for learning, development and care of children under five.

The training is interactive to allow participants to put their learning into practice and to enable them to reflect on this. Each unit includes ‘follow on’ activities to embed the learning further.

Aims and outcomes

Each training unit is based on a specific area of the early learning goals and will enable early years professionals to:

  • raise standards of provision
  • inform their setting’s self-evaluation process
  • demonstrate aspects of leadership and management required for early years teacher status.
