Welcome to the online professional development programme.
There is a childcare training booking form (see right) for you to save to your own computer so that you can fill it in and email it back to us or print off and post as usual. Unfortunately we are unable to take telephone bookings.
Use the link below to find out which courses are available
These courses cater for all childcare practitioners (including childminders) looking to develop their skills and meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the common core of skills and knowledge for the children's workforce and Ofsted. In order to book places on any course, you need to complete a booking form [doc]. Open the document and save it to your computer. You can then either fill it in and email it back to us or print it out and post it to the address at the bottom of the form.
Please note that courses start promptly so you should aim to arrive at least ten minutes before the start of the course. Arriving after the start time can cause disruption so please let us know if for any reason you may be late.
Use the symbols which appear on each course page as a guide to find out if the course is suitable for you:
