Training Resources

Start Well have developed some essential training resources to support practitioners to develop a strong curriculum offer for every child, supporting pedagogy and practice. These are:

  • The Communication and Language Journey
  • The Number Journey
  • The Mark Making to Writing Journey

These training resources will be updated to reflect the revised EYFS next academic year. In the meantime, to support providers as part of COVID-19 recovery planning, we are making the remaining stock available to providers at no cost, with a limit of 1 of each title per setting. Each Journey will also have an accompanying recorded training session that will be available online as a refresher or introductory session for new staff.

The resource will be made available to settings (providing funded education places) that do not already have a copy according to Bolton Start Well records, whilst stocks last.  If you do not have a copy in your school/setting, please contact Bolton Start Well by telephone: 01204 338149 to make arrangements to collect a free copy from Harvey Start Well Centre.


If for any reason we have to cancel or postpone a professional development session, we will notify all delegates booked onto the session as quickly as possible.
