Conquering the 3 I’s: Intent, Implementation and Impact in the EYs

Face to Face Training on 19th June, 9:30am – 4:30pm

What does curriculum and assessment look like in the EYs?

This session will explore what we mean by curriculum in the early years. We will better understand a curriculum that is not delivered but is lived and experienced by our youngest learners; develop confidence in articulating our intent, implementation and impact; and we will explore “telling the story” and how we describe what we notice about their learning as part of our ongoing assessment practice.

Please note: This is BEYTH Training, so is charged.
