Funding your training
Services for Young Children offers early years and childcare Ofsted registered providers the opportunity to participate in a training subscription scheme to access a range of early years related continuous professional development training courses. The scheme operates on the basis that course places are purchased in advance and then used in the period April - March each year. In addition to the taught courses on offer, joining the subscription scheme also provides access to 4 e-learning/downloadable training resources per provider.
If you/your setting choose not to join the SfYC subscription scheme you can access the continuous professional development courses on offer by paying £100 at the time of booking for each place you require. N.B. The e-learning offer is not available to providers who do not join the subscription scheme.SfYC subscription scheme - please follow the link for further information about the scheme
