Workforce development: the Early Years Training and Development Centre 2019-20 can be found at earlyyears.portsmouth.gov.uk, along with details of how to purchase packages and one-off activities. The programme brings together the training courses and direct support offered by the Early Years and Childcare Team at Portsmouth City Council.
Moderation: the statutory EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) is led by the Early Years Advisory Teacher (Strategy) with a co-opted team of staff from across the City. Moderation of the EYFSP is a sampling process rather than a method for checking each child’s attainment.
We have also reintroduced ‘pre-school moderation’ that will be extended during 2019-20. This seeks to work with early years and childcare settings to moderate judgements and share best practice.
For more information about both moderation programmes contact [email protected].
Developing new provision: the early years and childcare team are able to support with a range of areas including business planning, reviewing accommodation, upskilling staff to support new age groups and increasing capacity of existing provision. For further information on the range of work we are able to support please contact [email protected].
Quality improvement: the early years team have a wide range of support and challenge opportunities across our workforce development programme. This includes specific workshops on key topics, site visits to provide practical support and bespoke training. For further information, please visit earlyyears.portsmouth.gov.uk.
