Fresh Ideas and Inspiration for education

Welcome to the World of Webinars

Those that work in Early Years are the most passionate of people. Curiosity, dedication and kindness emanate from any practitioner, but none more so than Alice Sharp. Alice is a world renowned Early Years specialist, taking her passion and commitment across the globe to put play at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

Posted on Tuesday 11th August 2020

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to attend a training session or visit her in Scotland, you’ll see and learn so many lessons and teachings from Alice, and you’ll come home a happier, more inspired individual.

But what if you can’t make it to Glasgow? What if you can’t take the time out for the journey? Even if Alice was local, can you spare the time and staff to go? In these turbulent times, the power of technology has never been a more obvious necessity in our lives, which is why we’ve partnered with Alice to deliver Webinars. Alice’s training from the comfort of your own chair!

We’re absolutely delighted to be sponsoring Alice with these webinars and supporting the/our Early Years community together. The webinars will last approximately an hour, although if the chit chat ball keeps rolling then it’s very easy to overrun and spend a little longer talking to other industry professionals on what we’re most passionate about!
