We’re excited to be working with Education Development Trust to deliver Phase 3 of the Early Years Professional Development Programme (EYPDP) funded by the Department for Education. This programme will help you to support children who struggle with talking and understanding words.


Don't wait! Register your interest for the FREE to access Early Years Professional Development Programme starting this September.

Cohort two starts this September. The programme has been designed to fit flexibly around busy lifestyles and will be delivered through a blended mix of online eLearning and facilitated webinars. It will take approximately 60 hours and 8 months to complete and is free to access.

Early years practitioners will be trained across three modules:

  • Communication and Language
  • Early Mathematics
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)

Early years settings and childminders across all participating Local Authorities in England who currently work with 2-4 year-olds are invited to register now.*

The impact of the programme  

After completing a previous phase of this programme delivered last year, 99% of practitioners agreed that they were able to apply the new learning to improve their everyday practice and the majority of practitioners reported an increase in confidence across all three content areas.**
“I am learning so much!  Session two and I am reflecting on my practice, my setting and the quality of the conversations.  Having the opportunity to speak to practitioners from a range of settings is really beneficial.”
Claire, from Wakefield, Early Years Practitioner currently on the EYPDP
