BRISTOL EARLY YEARS RESEARCH

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

The Bristol Early Years professional development offer is brought together here for your information and easy reference. We hope you find something of interest to both inspire and deepen your understanding of early years practice. The opportunities published here cover a broad spectrum of themes, including early years leadership, pedagogy, inclusion and welfare and safety. These are offered by a range of local, quality-assured providers.

Bristol Early Years is now becoming well known for its reflective, research-engaged approach to quality improvement. Insights gained from practitioner-led, setting based research continue to generate a rich evidence-base of early years practice, as documented on the Bristol Early Years Research website. We therefore invite you to view this CPD offer in conjunction with the research website – and please do keep us informed about your new research interests, lines of enquiry and findings!

We hope these opportunities will encourage you on your own learning journeys and that this will continue to enrich your practice and your delight in working with our youngest children.
