The evidence for investing in the development of early years staff is clear. Better qualified staff help babies and young children develop and learn, with impacts that last into primary school, secondary school, and adulthood. Imagine how much more children could achieve and increase their life chances with a stronger focus on Early Year provision.

During this webinar video June O’Sullivan, CEO London Early Years Foundation, Sarah McPeake, EY Policy DfE, and Gareth Conyard, Education Director TDT, discuss how Early Years’ settings can develop their staff, the National Professional Qualification in Early Years Leadership’s place in this, whilst reflecting on previous attempts to improve the level of qualification.
