What happens on this course?

A bespoke course, designed for new EYFS leaders looking to advance their knowledge, understanding and practice.  We will explore effective ways to develop a shared understanding of what is quality practice within the EYFS and efficient strategies to improve teaching across a team.  The structure of the course allows delegates to visit key topics at opportune points throughout the academic year, with time in between for self-reflection.  Delegates will be invited to complete a gap task and have additional 1-1 discussions. 

The course will cover:

  • Consideration of what leadership and learning means in the EYFS;
  • Embedding and monitoring the new statutory framework;
  • Establishing a vision and ethos for EYFS in your school;
  • Exploring the characteristics of an effective EYFS Leader;
  • Roles and responsibilities of an EYFS Lead;
  • Preparing for inspection.
