Professional Development

We provide a wide range of ways to support your professional development:

Supporting professional development is one of the most important parts of our work.  We do this in several ways:

  • Bespoke courses and consultancy -  through our Associates programme you can book one of our expert trainers to deliver INSET days and in-house training, or provide ongoing support and consultancy.  You can browse a list of sample courses offered, search for Associates with particular areas of expertise, or contact us with specific requests
  • Local branch events - see your local branch page for details of the kind of events which are running in your area or view the full list of nationwide events
  • One-day and twilight courses - you can book onto our regular training courses, which run at a range of locations around the country
  • Conferences and seminars including an Autumn Conference accompanying our AGM in November, our Annual National Conference held in May/June each year, and a range of ad hoc events on topical issues
  • Froebel Trust Short Courses - a unique opportunity to build your practice around core Froebelian principles
  • Accredited programmes
