New education inspection framework from September 2019

Ofsted's new education inspection framework from September 2019 applies to maintained schools and academies, non-association independent schools, further education and skills providers and early years settings.

Early years professional development fund

We're pleased to announce that we've been selected to be part of a new national government initiative.

The early years professional development fund will focus on developing communication, language and literacy in the early years. We'll be working with a nationally recognised organisation to offer a one time opportunity for you to become a ‘CPD Champion’ for Derbyshire.

You'll receive free high quality training from the nationally recognised organisation to enable you to then deliver this training and share practice in the sector in partnership with the local authority. To find out more details and register your interest in this exciting new initiative please see the early years professional development fund expression of interest flyer attached to this page.
