A new approach to professional development

SMARTpd puts YOU in charge

SMARTpd offers bespoke high quality training and professional development packages from the Alliance. 

We create a cost-effective, bespoke early years professional development package to meet your needs — for individuals and group settings.

Getting you started

It's easy!

1. Simply complete this short questionnaire to highlight your, or your team's training needs. 

2. This will form the basis of your FREE professional development consultation with a qualified Alliance training advisor.

3. Once you complete the questionnaire, your consultant will contact you to arrange a suitable time to discuss your requirements.

“As you know, there's so much professional development training and support available now that it's often hard for practitioners to identify what they could really benefit from and how best to spend their budgets.

"The Alliance's SMARTpd offers an innovative, new approach to professional development. We listen and work closely with you to shape a programme that really meets your needs in the most cost-effective way possible.” — Eve Smith, Pre-school Learning Alliance Training Manager
