National Induction Resource

This resource has been developed to support you in your induction to delivering ELC –whether that is funded ELC or ELC that families choose to purchase themselves. It has been developed specifically to support staff working in ELC centres rather than in childminding settings. It sets out how you can expect your employer to support you in your new role and includes links to the range of national resources which are available to support you. It has been developed collaboratively with the range of national organisations supporting the profession.

Early Years RIC Sub Group

The Early Years RIC Sub Group met last week to discuss and evaluate the event “It’s a Good Time to be Two” which took place on 12th Feb for staff who work with two year old children across the RIC.

The feedback from attendees has been extremely positive especially in giving people the opportunity to network and share across the four authorities.  There was a request for more training on Improvement Methodology. The feedback will be analysed in further detail and a plan for the way forward will be created.
