Curriculum CPD

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) supports the whole team in developing their learning, skills, and experience. It allows time for them to reflect on what they do and to evaluate how they can make improvements to this. It can also simply provide a refresher for existing knowledge. Ultimately it benefits the children in our care as it keeps the team up to date with current practices.  

Our obligations within the EYFS framework are 

‘Providers must support staff to undertake appropriate training and professional development opportunities to ensure they offer quality learning and development experiences for children that continually improve.’

There’s no doubt that enhancing your team’s knowledge with up-to-date team training is one of the best ways to ensure consistency and meet your ongoing CPD requirements under the EYFS. 

So whilst there are no specific courses that are required or indeed any detailed guidance on what to do, in order to be delivering childcare at the highest level, CPD must have become embedded within your practice. A regular and ongoing program is in place and the whole team benefits from the latest research and knowledge.

At MBK there is a range of existing training courses on offer, incorporating current research and developments. In addition to these standard courses we are able to bespoke a ranges of courses for settings, to suit their own current areas of focus. This can range from anything such as Language Development to Enhancing Interactions or even developing your own Curriculum. 

During inspections, Ofsted will talk to staff about their CPD and what the impact has been on this on the children. The outstanding practice identifies the areas that need improvement and are addressing these through CPD activities. 

Never before has it been so important to get your team together in a room to develop specific aspects of your curriculum knowledge and methods of working together.  Here is an outline of some of the courses to inspire you

Having the reassurance that we always have a reliable training provider to deliver several courses across the year relieves a lot of pressure on me, as a Manager. MBK are efficient and helpful, they take on board any suggestions for the content of courses, meaning they are tailored to our individual settings where possible. We are in our second year using MBK and would highly recommend.

Roundabouts Day Nursery

I recently had the pleasure to take part in the leadership and management training with Emma Beard from MBK. Emma was welcoming, friendly and professional. She made many of us, new to the management role, feel confident to share any worries or queries within the group. The activities and tasks were well presented and added valuable knowledge and understanding of what our roles would consist of. Resources and materials needed were provided in advance to allow all participants to feel confident to engage in break out discussions and present ideas of what we thought was important in good management. Thank you for helping me feel ready to take the next step in my career!

MBK has helped so much as we have four settings and therefore many staff who need to keep Up to date with Early Years Training etc. MBK have a wide range of courses and dates that we are able to fit around different staff's working pattern, company positions and we can prioritise and plan accordingly.
The courses they attend are relevant and of interest and informative. Being with others from the workplace helps also as it prompts discussion and confidence.

The visits we have had with Tricia and her team have been wonderfully informative, lots of useful information that has proven to be very practical. The visits have assisted with the continued progression of the nursery curriculum and financial stability, along with supporting our self evaluation and staff development.

It’s great how they share new information and include you all once you have attended one of their courses which are very interesting and encouraging. The file containing all areas of Ofsted EYFS is an easy tool when training Senior Staff.
