All of our training courses link with the Early Years Foundation Stage, current best practice and, where relevant, meet Ofsted requirements.
We have a team of expert in-house trainers, and work in partnership with professional consultants and trainers who are experts in their field, to deliver relevant workshops and training session that meet current guidelines and legislation. All our training courses can also be delivered to your staff team at your setting or at our training centre in Milton Keynes.
At Acorn, we offer expert consultancy services for early years providers and forest school leaders, where we offer visits to individual settings and support with the development of the learning environment, observing and improving practice, reviewing leadership and management practices, among many other areas. We also have close working relationships with professional and expert consultants in the fields of safeguarding and SEND, and can connect you with their services.
