New to Teaching in the EYFS?

Course description

The role of the teacher in the early years can be challenging, daunting, exciting and extremely rewarding. This three day course has been specifically designed to equip teachers who are new to working in the early years with knowledge and skills that underpin a clear and principled pedagogy. It will enable participants to critically reflect on their own practice and develop their professional expertise in working with younger children.

Across the course we will closely look at the requirements of the statutory framework (EYFS) and examine how this can be translated into quality practice for all children. The programme will also draw on current research, child development theories and some of the great pioneers and innovators in early education.
