Launching UK first early years educator course

Nurseries in South West Yorkshire are invited to benefit from a free programme for early years educators

EDU - PECE project

Our newly launched project, Positive Early Childhood Education (PECE) is featured in FE news.

Dr Anna Weighall, academic lead for the trial, commented: ‘This is an exciting opportunity to build on existing evidence that the PECE programme makes a positive difference to early years educators. It’s a timely moment to offer more support to staff as policy makers look to invest more in early learning environments and improving outcomes for babies and children.’ 

Are you a nursery who’d like to be part of this exciting research project? All participating nurseries will have free access to the 4-module PECE online training for their staff. Please register your interest by emailing Dr Anna Weighall and we’ll send further information.
