Starcatchers is a pioneering organisation that specialises in performance and creativity for babies, toddlers and young children under the age of five in Scotland.
In addition to creative developments and tours of performances for this age group, Starcatchers also delivers programmes of training for Early Years practitioners.
From 2013-2015, Starcatchers is delivering a new pilot programme of Creative Skills Training for Early Years practitioners in Scotland. Funded by the Scottish Government and Creative Scotland, this programme offers a range of training sessions from Early Years artists which explore expressive arts using an open-ended, child centred approach.
The programme is for everyone working across the Early Years sector, including staff in nursery and family centre settings, health workers, child minders and out-of-school and play workers.
The second phase of the pilot will run from September 2014 to February 2015 in the following local authority areas; Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Fife, Inverclyde, South Lanarkshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Dundee, East Lothian and Highland.
There are no costs attached to the programme for participants during the pilot. Applications close soon so if you would like to find out more or if you want to complete the short application form please click on the links below.
