New: Early Education webinars for summer term 2021

We have taken our training online to provide you with professional learning opportunities that you can access during the current social distancing regulations.  We’ve also changed the focus of our training to address the topics we know are most pressing, with a focus on:

  • how you can support families with home learning, and
  • planning ahead for supporting children’s transitions when they are able to return to settings and schools.

Course structure

All our courses will be run as two-part webinars with each session lasting an hour, roughly a week apart, with a gap task to be completed between the two sessions to help embed your learning.  We encourage you to join live where you can, but if you miss a session you can catch up with the video “on demand” afterwards.


Our online courses cost £25 for members and £30 for non-members (Not a member?  See membership options including Taster Membership from £10.)

Buy 5 or more courses together to get a 20% discount, or a 25% discount on 10 or more webinars.  For higher volume bulk purchases, please contact us to discuss pricing.
