Theories on CPD in practiceHi everybody, I'm a level 3 practitioner and for a course I'm required to find out other practitioners opinions and theories on CPD and how it all actually works in practice for you all. I personally think that CPD is one of the most vital things you can do as a practitioner and in the ever changing world of early education it is important that we keep our skill base up, especially to prove those 'it's not a real teacher job' people! However I'd like to hear all of your thoughts on how you think CPD is beneficial to you and your staff and practice, and especially if there are any cons to it (like needing time of work, financial costs, time consuming, becoming outdated etc) thank you in advance!
Hello, I hope everyone is coping well. I'm due to start university in September (BA Early Childhood Studies). I purchased two textbooks (suggested purchases from the reading lists) just to start having a read over the summer and get myself back into the swing of 'study' - but I haven't got a clue what I'm doing anymore! It has been a good 10 or 11 years since I completed my level 3 diploma. Everything and nothing seems important haha. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Keeley 😊
Training during closures
Sarah_Church posted a topic in Covid 19Hi, We are making contingency plans for potential future closures. One of the things we'd like access to is free podcasts and webinars. I know the foundation stage forum have them, I've got YouTube on my list as well as childcare.co.uk. Could anyone let me know where else these things could be accessed? Many thanks

Lvl 3 CACHE EYW (EYE) child study
enuffsenuf posted a topic in NVQsTwo of my ladies are doing the new lvl 3 course and are approaching their "longitudinal" child study section. There were some posts on here a while back about exactly what this entailed and there was a lack of consistent information. It has been suggested by their tutor that they could start their child study this term to give a good time band but as yet they haven't really been given any info on what this entails nor is it clear from their text books as this course has slightly changed in the last year. Has anyone completed this in the last few months and if so what was required from your tutor re the study ie was it just one child over a period of time with 4 observations which you then linked to development etc or was it planning activities for the child study then observing and linking to development etc. When I did my child study (sometime last century!......just kidding but sometimes it feels like that) we had to choose a child and then do a series of different style obs (planned/spontaneous) covering different areas of development in those days using SPICE . We then had to link the obs to child theorists.......for example if my child did X I might say that Freud said this was because ......whilst Piaget said it was because......... and then draw my own conclusions. Is it similar or is it now completely different? Any advice would be useful....but I would like it to be first hand re this course and not anecdotal or what anyone thinks it might be.....Thank you
