Develop your expertise in early years leadership in just 18-months, and help to give all children up to the age of five the best possible start in life.
We’ve designed this new, fully funded, NPQ which gives you a greater understanding of how to lead early years education to a high standard. With new knowledge, you can advance and learn what great care looks like.
Our approach uses the latest evidence to help you put your learning into practice in your early years setting and is taught in small but frequent bursts. You’ll train alongside other early years leaders with similar responsibilities, focus on tackling persistent problems you face and develop your expertise.
This is a new NPQ developed by the Department for Education, with an expert advisory group and early years leaders, academics and experts. The programme aligns with the NPQs for teachers and school leaders. Each NPQ shares a common language and framework to help drive improvement across education.
No project work is involved and the programme takes minimal time out of your early years’ setting, so you can fit this NPQ around your busy timetable.
