Providers may request, or be identified, as requiring more specific support. In this case, providers can pay for additional support or bespoke training from the Early Years & Childcare Team.
Bespoke training can be delivered as either INSET, twilight (Saturday) or a virtual session. The training can be tailored to meet the needs of the setting, to small or large groups, or to individuals. This can be one-to-one training around leadership, data etc, or training for the staff team around a variety of subjects.
The cost of the training includes preparation, travel, delivery of training, handouts and certificate of attendance.
