Lead Practitioners

Lead Practitioners In Lancashire

The Lead Practitioner Scheme was established to contribute to the continued development of high quality practice within the Early Years Foundation Stage in Lancashire.
A group of Managers working in a variety of settings and contexts throughout the County have been selected to offer support to other Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners by acting as exemplars and sharing good practice.

 

Through this scheme, managers and owners have the opportunity to visit other settings, observe high quality teaching and early years provision and have discussion with lead practitioners, who are working in a similar context.

 

How do I book a visit to this setting?

 

Settings regularly open their doors throughout the year to visitors.  Please see the Training brochure for current dates that are booked by following the link:

It may be possible for you to arrange to visit the setting at another time or for the lead practitioner to support you in your setting. Please contact the setting directly to enquire if this would be possible. Please be aware that this may incur a cost.
