Become an Associate

We have a rolling programme of recruitment to supplement our team of Early Education Associates, who are leading early childhood education specialists delivering high quality training and consultancy.

Our next set of interviews will take place around Autumn 2017.

Our Associates programme is widely recognised as having pedagogically sound principles that support the professional development of early years practitioners working in maintained, private, voluntary, independent and home-based settings.  The programme was established to further realise the charitable aims and objectives of Early Education, to support both strategically and practically, the training, professional development and mentoring needs of multi-professional teams to work with the parents, families and friends who support each child to learn effectively.

Our Associates support schools, settings and local authorities.  Our Associates are in high demand, so we are seeking to recruit more trainers who can deliver a similarly high quality training and consultancy service.

In particular, we are looking to recruit Associates with some of the following areas of expertise:

  • All areas related to the introduction of the Early Years Pupil Premium
  • Adult and child led learning
  • Emerging literacy (to include early reading and early literacy)
  • ICT (the use of iPads/technology)
  • Mathematics
  • Phonics
  • Two-year-olds (including the progress check at two)

We are also looking to recruit Associates with a demonstrable track record in supporting those working in home based early education settings.

Applications would also be welcome from potential Associates with knowledge and experience of the curriculum frameworks in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
