Early Years Training

The Early Years, Childcare and Business Development Service alongside partners and commissioned services have created bespoke training packages. These aim to empower the Early Years sector to provide high quality, inclusive and safe provision that prepares children for school. Training will either be delivered as a packaged project or using a tiered approach.

Tiered Approach Training

The tiered approach is a single training subject consisting of three tiers – each tier should be engaged with in different stages. The tiered approach could be used as team training or individual training.

Tier 1 is a guidance document

This document should be read first as it includes key information and advice about the training subject. This should be read before moving onto Tier 2.

Tier 2 is a recorded webinar

This should be watched following reading the guidance document from Tier 1. This may be watched in staff meetings or individually. Throughout the recorded webinar there will be opportunities to pause for thought or discussions if you are in a group. At the end of the webinar you will be prompted to create an action plan based on the information and advice you learnt about the training subject from the webinar. This should be accessed before moving onto Tier 3.

Tier 3 is a virtual live discussion

This should be booked onto after completing Tier 1 and 2. This will be a virtual session facilitated by the early years professional who created the training, there will also be other early years professionals invited to offer their expertise. The session will be an opportunity to share the outcomes of accessing the training, the action plan you created and implemented and a chance to ask and discuss any further queries about the training subject. This can be booked on through WF traded services.
