Training Brochure Spring 2018

"Visions of Childhood deliveries are always ‘outstanding’, their course content is relevant, interesting and is delivered in such a fantastic way that they have your complete attention as you listen in awe.

I would always highly recommend ‘Tricky Conversations’ and I have returned to work and suggested to our team that if this is re-delivered to attend, as I found it most useful to support our roles when in engaging in conversation."

Kind regards

Sue, Birstall Pre-school

"I would like to thank the staff at West Yorkshire (South) for helping us to begin to work through some difficult staffing issues.  They were able to give us a much clearer understanding of the structure that needs to be in place for the committee. The staff were knowledgeable and had a lot of experience from working with other settings.  

"This enabled them to help us move forward as a committee and steer us in the right direction for the future. As a committee I’m sure we will be making more use of the Pre-School Learning Alliance training that is available.  We are very grateful for the support and guidance we have got from the Pre-School Learning Alliance,  and feel this is an excellent service."

We can also offer this support to non-member committee-managed pre-schools as a chargeable service.
