Early Excellence for EYFS

All training is new and, as this is the fourth year of the Ebor Academy Trust partnership with Early Excellence, we are aware the majority of practitioners now have all the basics. This new set of programmes will extend thinking and focus on the new framework.

Programme overview

These sessions will draw on the latest research findings and explore the key steps involved in early language development. Consider the processes involved in holding a ‘conversation’, vocabulary enrichment and how we can successfully support quality talk within provision.

The programme will be split into 3 sessions:
