Local early years training and workshops

Women in workshop

Important notice — Workshops and training courses 

Because of the national lockdown due to Covid-19, Alliance training events and workshop events will be taking place online.

We want to ensure you will still receive important face-to-face support and advice from us at this difficult time.

You can find out about your local online events by looking at your local Service Hub's website (see below) and go to the Our Services tab, then select Training & Workshops in the dropdown menu.

If you are interested in online training opportunities please register your interest using our online enquiry form.

Thank you for your understanding and please be assured we are doing all we can to keep you connected locally.


Supporting early years practitioners is a priority for us and we do this through our national network of nine Service Hubs.

Through our Hubs we offer early years practitioners a wide range of high quality up-to-date specialist training and workshops in key areas to boost skills, enhance expertise and inspire confidence in your work.

To book an online workshop please look for your relevant Early Years Alliance Service Hub below, visit their website and then contact them. 

Or you can contact our Development Services team and ask what is happening in your area. Call them on 0207 697 2587 or email development@eyalliance.org.uk and they will be happy to answer your questions.

Note: Training is open to Alliance members and non-members but Alliance members enjoy reduced rates
