PEAL training supports all early years settings to meet requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Children's Centre Practice Guidance to work in partnership with parents to enhance children's learning and development.
The training is available through the Early Childhood Unit of the National Children's Bureau.
Participants complete a day's preparation activities in their own settings and then attend a facilitated training day that explores the underpinning research, examines the nature of relationships with parents, considers how to overcome barriers to involvement and highlights examples of successful practice.
All participants receive free resources including a DVD. Participants can seek accreditation at level 3, through City and Guilds, upon submission of a portfolio.
