Early Years Professional Development Programme

What is the training programme’s purpose? 

The programme will offer specific in-depth training for up to 10,000 early years professionals from all participating Local Authorities in England over a 2 year period.  There will be staggered start dates across the 2023\25 period with a total of four cohorts, the first of which is due to start in February 2023. The EYPDP offers a comprehensive package of professional development that is based on as well as building upon practitioners’ skills and knowledge with peers and expert trainers to improve the quality of adult-child interactions.

The programme provides support for practitioners to:

  • Improve skills to identify children at risk of speech, language and communication needs
  • Provide an understanding of the theory of child development in early mathematics
  • Develop skills to support children’s self-confidence, relationships, and self-awareness through expertly developed Personal, Social and Emotional Development training 
  • Improve engagement with parents and carers to support the home learning environment
