Alliance Spotlights are bite-size CPD sessions that offer a unique deep-dive into key aspects of early years topics.
Each week over the course of an hour, we will take a closer, more detailed look at specific areas of interest to you.
If you have ever attended an early years training session and wished that you’d had the time to delve more deeply into a particular area of discussion, Alliance Spotlights are for you.
Cost: Just £12 for Alliance Members and £24 for non-members
Baby Brain Development
Understanding the foundations of how children learn can really shape practice when it comes to supporting early development. The brain is amazing and the first years are crucial! Join this Spotlight to discover the physiological importance of brain development for babies.
Early Years Inspection Handbook
This session will delve into the Inspection Handbook and explore the key features and requirements for inspection.
Together we will use the handbook to look at how Ofsted inspect registered early years provision and explore the way inspectors are seeking to understand the specific impact of COVID -19 on providers.
Home Learning Environment
The home learning environment has a significant and lasting impact on children’s development. Parents/ carers are their child’s first and most enduring educators and working in partnership with them is key to ensuring children are given the best opportunity to reach their full potential.
Process Over Product
This session will shine the spotlight on process over product and explore just what that means in the early years. Join us as we look at the differences between product art and process art and how we can support children to discover the joy of doing rather than the end result.
