The future is EY smart

We know that training and CPD is an important part of your career. We also know that sometimes it can be time consuming and take away from your day-to-day responsibilities – not to mention the cost! But we've got a new solution.

EY smart is free, online training offering short, 10 minute courses that can be done on any device, at any time.

The content and structure of the training puts the child at the centre of the learning - so everything can be directly applied to your setting and the children in your care.

We've filmed with practitioners, children and parents at a variety of real settings, to demonstrate examples from actual practice. Each course links theory and practice together in an accessible and meaningful way.

Phase one in England, focusses on the introduction of the Education Inspection Framework (EIF). Phase two launches later this year and looks at the changes to the EYFS and will include courses covering upcoming changes in Wales.

We have been working with a wide range of experts including PACEY President Penny Tassoni; The Open University and childcare practitioners from across the country.

EY smart has been made possible thanks to a grant from Ufi Trust’s VocTech Impact programme.
