We are currently running one conference and two half-day courses at various locations across the country. Please see below for further details.

Our newest course is called 'Brilliant Beginnings' where we delve into the powerful synergy of play, science and research-backed methods to support you in maximising your impact on the best outcomes for children.

Drawing on over three decades of international consultancy work and my most recent doctoral research into the early years, I will guide you through the art of creating impactful learning environments that harness the power of evidence-based practice.

... I don't think I've ever been to a training course where the time just flew like it did today - and how much more one can learn when you are laughing, relaxed and enjoying yourself. I'm going to think about that next time I'm standing in front of my class. Thank you!  - Laura.

I can safely (and a bit sadly) say that in 20+ years in education that I have never felt so inspired to leave a training event and immediately need to thank the speaker personally, sign up to a mailing list, buy a book and put a date in my diary to access another conference 15 months in advance! Can't wait to inspire my team tomorrow.  - Sue.

A BIG THANK YOU from my teachers and I. We attended your conference in Manchester and it was fantastic. It was inspirational listening to someone who fully understands and is totally tuned in to how children learn in the early years. - Karen.
