Knowing what training is available, how to pick what is most appropriate and where to access it can be extremely daunting not only to newly qualified practitioners but experienced too.
This episode has been developed with Kate and Alice to signpost some of the different training, resources and organisations available, as recommended by Kate. From free resources, accessible learning programmes and toolkits to support practitioners on their journey, Kate suggests a variety of different options that will enable continuing professional development and enhance children’s early language development.
Examples of useful resources
- BBC’s Tiny Happy People: A platform developed to support children’s language skills.
- Hungry Little Minds campaign: led by the Department for Education, which offered help to encourage parents and carers to engage in activities to support learning and development in the early years and beyond.
- NSPCC’s Look Say Sing Play campaign.
- Free training through the Early Years SEND partnership.
