Courses and Training

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realise, the less I know.” – Michel Legrand.

We provide a variety of learning opportunities for the children’s workforce.  These include our own JCCT Courses, supporting others to deliver training as well as providing bursaries for local training opportunities.

The Knowledge Makes Change seminar series aims to inspire and be informative on ‘what works’ for young children and their families to ensure the best possible outcomes. Knowledge Makes Change is provided as part of the Early Childhood Development Programme.

‘Making it REAL’ (Raising Early Achievement in Literacy)

Engaging parents in their children’s early literacy development has been shown to improve children’s outcomes and help to narrow the gap between disadvantaged and other children.

The diversity of experiences across all children and early years setting in Jersey means that the introduction of Making it REAL will enable practitioners to reach out to parents and families, building confidence and knowledge to support early home learning, with a powerful impact on children’s outcomes and on family literacy practice.  We are currently working with 611 parents and 735 children across the island and Making it REAL projects, events and wider engagement.

All nurseries and pre-schools in Jersey have been offered the opportunity to take part in an island-wide programme which includes a focus on literacy and maths and more than 500 families have taken part so far.
