Training Programme

September 2019 to July 2020

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.

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

Course fee increases

On 1 September 2019 our course fees went up by 3 per cent in line with the Retail Price Index (RPI). If you already booked on a course, we will invoice you at the new price.

Early years and childcare providers in Essex:

  • full day courses went up from £65 to £67
  • half-day courses went up from £35 to £36
  • eLearning went up from £20 to £21

Essex local authority schools and academies - including maintained, private and independent

  • full day courses went up from £130 to £134
  • half-day courses went up from £70 to £72
  • eLearning went up from £40 to £41

Check the details of each course as some fees will be different to these. Before you book on a course, read the terms and conditions on the online booking form. We can't refund course fees.
