Subject associations are a great source of training, support and guidance.
Early Education: The British Association for Early Childhood Education
Early Education state:
We campaign for policies that support young children’s best interests. We were the only early years sector organisation represented on the DfE’s EYFS Advisory Panel, having brought together other sector organisations and unions to provide a united voice for the sector.
We provide a forum for professional support and discussion for all those working
in the field of early childhood education. Our members include teachers, practitioners, local authority advisers, consultants and trainers, researchers and those delivering early years teacher training and professional qualifications. We have volunteer- run local branches which offer twilight and weekend CPD, and we offer regular courses and conferences regionally and nationally. Our publications and electronic resources cover all aspects of early years provision. Our expert team of Associates offer bespoke support, training and development to schools, settings and local authorities.
