Early Years Bitesize Training
Sandwell Early Years bitesize training for providers and practitioners.
The Sandwell Early Years Team has produced a series of "Bitesize" training materials, covering a range of important topics, that all Early Years practitioners can access at any time.
Once a set of training has been completed, delegates can use a Microsoft Form (contained in each training presentation) to generate a certificate confirming their participation.
We hope that practitioners will find the "Bitesize" training useful, and if there are any questions or further training needs please contact your QTS
