CPD Opportunities 2024/2025

Welcome to our all sector programme of Statutory and CPD opportunities for 2024/25.

We are pleased to be able to continue to offer a range of training courses for colleagues who work with Early Years children across Nottingham City and beyond.  Our website features courses for maintained and non-maintained Schools, PVI Day Nurseries, Pre-Schools and Childminders. Each course, listed below, states who the training is suitable for.

To accommodate differing learning styles we have a variety of exciting courses available delivered in a variety of ways (online, blended and face to face) and our trainers are locally and nationally recognised in the world of Early Years. To make it easier for you to identify which sessions you would like to attend we have listed courses under five headings and stated the audience the sessions are suitable for. 

Please click on each link in the sections below to find out more about each course and to book your place and to see what is coming up each month download EY CPD Opportunities Directory.

We hope you enjoy planning your continuous professional development with Nottingham City Early Years Team!
