The key role of the Early Years Learning Improvement Team is to provide advice, support, training and challenge to schools and settings which meet their individual priorities and development needs. We are a not for profit traded service offering a wide range of high quality training events, individual bespoke support sessions and flexible packages.
Our team of early years learning improvement consultants offer a wealth of early years experience, knowledge and expertise across a wide range of schools, settings and children's centres.
We have a strong track record in early years improvement and have successfully supported many schools/settings to improve the quality of provision and practice. Across the team we have extensive knowledge of both the Early Years Statutory Framework, the Learning and Development Requirements and the Early Years Ofsted Framework. The team works closely with our regional Early Years Ofsted inspectors to ensure that we are well informed about key themes and trends. We offer a wide range of support and services, ranging from our universal training offer to a totally bespoke service for individual schools/settings. We also have packages of bespoke support available for schools/settings that would like to design a more comprehensive improvement plan for the year. The offer is completely flexible and can be tailored to meet the individual priorities of your school/setting. Our consultants have particular areas of expertise which they constantly update and develop to ensure that their training and support is of the highest quality.
