Training Programme

In light of government Covid19 guidance advising of travel and social contact only for essential activities, we have taken the decision to postpone all early years training events up until the end of the summer term (23 July 2020) and we await further government instruction before committing to alternative dates or events.

Essex is working closely with the Department for Education and the Department for Health, monitoring the Covid19 situation on a daily basis. 

Updates from Essex County Council to the early years sector are published on the COVID19 - Coronavirus page. Please make sure you access this and the news items on a regular basis as this is where we'll provide updates. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

September 2019 to July 2020

We will keep our early years and childcare website updated with information so please keep an eye out here for any further updates.

Our new training programme is now available on the Citizen Space portal as we’re no longer using EES (CPD Online). This is a temporary arrangement until our online shop goes live. Be the first to know when it does and subscribe to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Newsletter. 

In the meantime, read about each course and book places by visiting the links below. They all open in new windows apart from Safeguarding level 1 which opens in the same window.

We'll update this page on a regular basis. So remember to revisit from time to time.
