Why should I do this course?

Safeguarding and welfare requirements

Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure. The safeguarding and welfare requirements explain exactly what you must do to ensure these are met. The first part of the course explores each one in detail.

Characteristics of effective learning

Children learn in different ways, through investigating, exploring, and developing their own ideas. These different ways of learning are described in the characteristics of effective teaching and learning

Areas of learning and development

Children follow the same sequence of development but at different rates. There are seven areas of learning and development described and an opportunity for you to think about how the activities you provide support these areas.


Assessment forms an important part in enabling you to work closely with parents to understand a child's needs and plan activities. The next section explores the requirements for assessment

Reflective practice

Lastly you have the opportunity to evaluate your practice and identify where your practice is strong and areas for development

Here's what some of our members thought  


"This was the third course I have completed. All have offered new information and ideas that I am incorporating into my setting. After completing this course I am going to look into SEND and how I can implement some of the ideas and also how I can inform parents with tips they can use at home."

"Found it really useful. I'm a manager of a setting so I have already implemented all the things in it, but it definitely refreshed my memory."
