Panel Discussions and CPD Seminars
Enjoy debating on hot topics? Take part in one of our panel discussions on education and staffing, where experts will unpack the issues surrounding recruitment and retention. In addition, the conversation will look into how we can start rebuilding the workforce and reveal how to unlock some of the key issues that will shape the future of the sector.
With a total of eight seminars spread over the course of the two-day event, there is overflowing opportunity to learn new skills and expand your knowledge! On Friday, Alistair Bryce-Clegg from ABC Does will be revealing what the superpower is that we all possess – play! This will be followed by topics including speech, language and communication difficulties and nature pedagogy. The programme will conclude with the low down on Early Years inspections and curriculum updates from Ofsted themselves.
Saturday will start off by looking at child-led learning and how to create curious and creative little ones. Pennie Akehurst, Managing Director at Early Years Fundamentals will take a deeper look at the areas that frequently appear in inadequate and RI inspection reports; the reasons, trends and what practitioners can do to avoid these outcomes. To close off this excellent set of seminars, Early Years expert Shaddai Tembo will reflect on our responsibilities as educators in promoting social justice.
