Early Years consultants handbook cover

Local authorities have a statutory duty to provide information, advice and training to their Early Years workforce, and Early Years consultants should be at the forefront of delivering this. They are key players in ensuring that a local authority’s quality improvement strategy is implemented in all settings in a way that impacts on the lives of children and their families, offering measured support in inverse proportion to success.

This requires strong leadership and partnerships with settings across the maintained and private, voluntary and independent sectors, as well as with other children’s services providers.

This handbook offers some tools and information which Early Years consultants will find useful in carrying out this important role.
