If you work in childcare and early years provision in Newcastle, or are a childminder or childminding assistant in Newcastle you can access free training from the Early Years and Early Help Training Programme.


Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 pandemic the Early Years and Early Help Training Programme for April 2020 is on hold. We are working on a training programme that would be accessible during this and we will inform all providers when this is available.
