Training and Support for member settings

Important update: Because of the current situation due to the Coronavirus, all our workshops and Alliance Connect events will not be taking place at present.  

We are currently exploring options of delivering our workshops and other events online and will send out more information to you through our newsletters and on this website soon.

Please do contact us if there is anything specific you would like to see.

And members can, of course, still access the online training the Alliance has to offer: https://www.eyalliance.org.uk/educare 


The Alliance London and Kent Service Hub supports Alliance member settings across the London boroughs and Kent including pre-schools, nurseries, toddler groups, childminders and individuals.

We have been providing high quality support, advice and training to providers of early years education and childcare for more than 50 years.  We offer practical early years advice and support including:

  • specialist up-to-date training workshops on various topics including EIF and first aid - download our current training brochure  HERE
  • bespoke workshops and support for individual settings on site or as a cluster group - further information available in our Training Brochure 
  • safeguarding audits, Pre-Ofsted audits and business support packages
  • regular ALLIANCE CONNECT events for local providers for up-to-date information and support - download our current Alliance Connect events brochure HERE
  • a newsletter for member settings

Our national Information Service team can also answer questions, give advice and generally offer expert support for member settings. The team is available 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday, and you can contact them directly by phone on 0207 697 2595 or by email at info@eyalliance.org.uk (members also have access to the 24 hour legal helpline Law-call for specific legal questions).

Our members can also visit the members' area on the website to access free resources on a wide range of early years issues and common questions - our free mini-guides on a range of topics are really popular for this and are all located in the members' area.

Our special partnership with EduCare, the award-winning CPD-training provider, also gives Alliance members FREE access to valuable, distance-learning courses every year.
