We’re pleased to be able to tell you about the new, Department for Education-funded, National Professional Qualification in Early Years Leadership (NPQEYL) which has been developed to increase knowledge of leadership in early years settings, strengthen staff approaches to teaching and learning, and support children whose development has been impacted by the pandemic. 

Participants will gain skills and confidence so they can deliver high-quality education and care to support children’s development, become a better organisational leader and develop staff so they can reach their full potential.

The course is free, flexible and designed by sector experts to help professionals across the sector to develop their career. The next cohort commences in February 2023 and a further two funded cohorts will be offered in 2023/2024.
