Early Years Staff

Properly equipped early years staff will shine in this responsible role

Properly equipped early years staff will shine in this responsible role.

Whether you're a childminder or you run a nursery, pre-school or after school club, providing care in an early years setting is both rewarding and demanding. Early years professionals contribute to the care and education of babies, toddlers and children, which is a truly worthwhile role. 

Parents and guardians trust your organisation to provide the highest standards of care and support for their children, and this is a significant responsibility. Early years staff need to be properly equipped for the responsibilities that each day brings. There is no room for second best when it comes to the skills of your team who provide the care, day in, day out.

Investment in staff training and development is crucial, not only to support the vigorous demands of Ofsted inspectors, but also to ensure that you provide a safe, happy and healthy environment for those in your care. Equipping your staff with the skills and knowledge to provide this care through quality training programmes is always a good investment. It also makes their job more enjoyable and their work more professional. 

Our accredited early years qualifications will equip your staff to improve their practical skills and competence. Ultimately, you can deliver outstanding standards of care and satisfy Ofsted inspectors. Our tried and tested policy of matching trainers and learners from the same sector boosts the value of the learning.

The benefits of the excellent training provided to our staff have reverberated throughout the home. Staff feel more empowered and valued at all levels, not just care staff but ancillary staff too. The staff has a great thirst for knowledge which we are quenching thanks to Connect 2 Care and HIT Training.

Esther Thomas, Manager, Amesbury Abbey Nursing Home

Connect 2 Care [are] always supportive and at the end of a phone, very adaptable to changing needs. The training provided has increased underpinning knowledge throughout my work force and provided an appropriate level of education towards the needs of the residents we care for.

Helen Mullander, Manager, Winton Nursing Home

Over the years, training for care qualifications has been very important to me because it has not only developed my knowledge but it has also made a positive impact within the care settings that I’ve worked in.
