PDP

Personal Development Programme

We pride ourselves on our outstanding level of success over the past ten years. It is due to the high standards and excellent evaluations that we have been invited to places such as Beijing, Dubai and Milan to deliver training across a wide variety of subjects.  Every year we are invited to work in Westminster to create the most up to date practitioners conference for early years staff in London Early Years Foundation.

We have always been quick to respond to ongoing changes in our sector, revising existing courses as well as developing new ones to keep practictioners up to date, especially with our Personal Development Programme (PDP).

We have also been been quick to adapt our methods of delivery to suit our clients. In the current climate we find we are being increasingly invited to deliver training to whole staff teams. This means our PDP programme is smaller but even more focused on the particular needs of individual organisations and staff. Each course is developed by us based on what is ‘hot’ in inspection reports, new research and curriculum needs.

We also have a focus group of professionals that we consult to identify the needs and wants of all areas of early years.

Build Your Own Course

Since every nursery, family centre and early years establishment has their own, very different needs we would be happy to discuss any topics of specific interest you may have. In this way we can suggest the most relevant course for your needs.

If we do not currently have a course to suit, we can develop one for you or we can consider your needs when developing our next range of courses.

Skills Development Scotland – Individual Learning Accounts.

Each of our PDP courses has been approved for SDS ILA funding.

Skills Development Scotland Individual Learning Accounts (ILAs) are for people who are 16 or over and living in Scotland and are for individuals who will benefit most from this support. You can apply for an ILA if you do not have a degree or above, are not undertaking any secondary, further or higher education, training through the Employability Fund or Modern Apprenticeship, or participating on the Community Jobs Scotland programme. You must also have an income of £22,000 a year or less, or be on certain benefits to be eligible to get up to £200 towards the costs of learning or training.

ILAs are available if you are interested in learning something new or brushing up your skills. There is a wide range of courses to choose from and you can study with any approved ILA learning provider, including learning centres, local colleges, universities and private training companies.
