1 Overview

Our courses are aimed at all settings caring for children under five years of age including:

  • before and after school clubs and holiday playschemes
  • schools delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Early Years training courses and network events are available as either webinars or face-to-face.

The webinar joining link and the pre-course task (if required) will be attached to the Learning and Development Service course place confirmation email. Please open this email on a tablet or computer rather than a phone, as the links/materials are not always visible on a phone. If you do not receive the email, please check your junk mail and then contact early.years.training@westsussex.gov.uk.

Pre-course tasks, such as reading or collecting items from the setting to bring to the session, are compulsory and must be completed before the course to gain a certificate of completion. Details are available in the course description on the Learning and Development Service.

If you are booking a place for a colleague, please ensure that you inform them of any pre-course task requirements.
