Snapshot of a young learner: the Progress check at age two

The EYFS requires a progress check for all two-year-olds in early years settings, as a focus for working with parents, and particularly to pick up any children who might benefit from extra support.   This course will help practitioners to understand why the check is important, why sharing the process with parents is central to the check, and how to manage and record the process.

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand the progress check in context
  • Why early intervention? – Identifying key issues in the development of 2-year-olds
  • The revised EYFS – prime areas, characteristics of effective learning
  • Understand formative and  summative assessment
  • Use Development Matters to make best-fit judgements
  • Become familiar with guidelines on completing the progress check at age two
  • Consider partnership with parents, the importance of the home learning environment, and the role of the key person

Audience:  early years leaders and practitioners in schools and settings, local authority advisers, children’s centre staff

Trainer: Nancy Stewart
