In 18 months, you’ll develop expertise in early years leadership, helping to give all children up to the age of five the best possible start in life.
We’ve designed this new, fully funded, NPQ to help you develop your knowledge and understanding of what high-quality, early years education and care looks like.
Our ‘little and often’ approach uses the latest evidence to help you put your learning into practice in your early years setting. You’ll train alongside other early years leaders with similar responsibilities, focusing on developing your expertise to tackle the persistent problems you face in your role.
This is a new NPQ developed by the Department for Education. It was developed with an expert advisory group, and early years leaders, academics and experts. The programme sits alongside the NPQs for teachers and school leaders. Each NPQ shares the same common language and framework to help drive improvement across education.
With no project work and minimal time out of your early years’ setting, this NPQ is designed to fit around your busy timetable.
