Early Years Conference

There is still time to book your place on the Early Years Conference, Thursday 16 March, London Road Campus, 09.30am – 3.00pm.  

Presented by the Institute of Education, the conference is specially designed for those working with early years children. This year, the focus will be on process of intentional teaching and children being partners in their own learning.

Conference organiser Dr Helen Bilton said: “Last year’s event saw delegates emerging feeling reinvigorated and refreshed. That is what we have planned for them this year – with a different focus.”

Tickets include refreshments and lunch:

Comments from last year’s delegates:

“The day was thought provoking, inspiring, great resources, friendly teachers.”
