Bespoke Training and Events

Research shows that training delivered in house to whole staff teams is highly effective. Everybody hears the same messages at the same time and can work collaboratively together towards a common goal.

We can offer training packages for whole days, half days or twilight events on any EYFS subject you choose, but particularly themes related to the Training offer below.

We offer Access a full range of CPD through our scheduled programme including:

  • Observation, assessment and planning
  • Early Reading
  • Early Writing
  • Diminishing the difference
  • Outdoor learning on a shoestring
  • Ofsted, EYFS and Data

We also run network events in seven venues around Derbyshire twice a year on popular and topical themes. In 2018, the Networks will be about outdoor learning ‘on the cheap’ (autumn Term) and ‘Closing the vocabulary gap’ (spring term).
