Code: EY/21/1884 No Such Thing As Bad Weather ....

This one day training event will be packed with theory and practical ideas to inspire and motivate your team to take the learning outdoors and will provide practitioners with a toolbox of resources to use in their settings. 

Participants will be invited to get muddy and messy as they try a range of fun creative activities and by the end of the day they will have a takeaway plan and toolkit for their own setting.

As an outdoor nursery, operating from a small woodland on the outskirts of Portslade, we love to play outdoors, rain or shine. We always get asked is, ‘What do you do when it rains?’ which has inspired this training.

Since the pandemic more and more early years settings have beeen moving their provision outside and seeing the rich potential of outdoor play for learning. 

At this traiing we will share exactly what we ‘do when it rains’ and share tips and advice to make the most of every outdoor space and every weather.

Code: EY/21/1885 What About Assessment in the Revised EYFS?

This informative training session addresses the questions many practitioners are discussing as they consider the challenges around assessment in the revised EYFS (launched September 2021).

This course will support you in understanding what needs to be continued, what needs to be adapted, and what can be stopped.

The course shares insights into how an effective key person moves forward in the EYFS.

Practitioners will be equipped to ensure that manageable and appropriate assessment practices are tailored to match the needs of individual children.

Settings need to retain the core EYFS focus on high quality interactions with children, whilst reducing burdensome assessment and tracking systems and tuning in to each child’s learning and well-being needs.


The aims of this course are:

  • To enhance your understanding of approaches to assessment as set out in the revised EYFS
  • To equip you to refresh existing systems and implement a revised approach with confidence.
