Early Years Pedagogy Club

A new online professional development FREE concept.

In short, think book club and then translate to online professional development.

Once a month we’ll read a research paper, journal, blog, article, legislation, guidance or social media content. We may also watch an inspiring video clip, for example.

We’ll then come together on my Facebook page, via a live Facebook post, to share our reflections and discuss translations into practice.

The link will always be free and Laura will share it at least one month before to enable participants to read and/or watch.

If participants would like a certificate for their professional development record, the investment will be £4.95 per certificate.

Date for your diary

The first session will be on Tuesday 5th February at 7pm and Laura will circulate the link for the discussion in the new year.
