What will I learn?

The new Education Inspection Framework states that inspectors will look for evidence that leaders engage with staff, supporting them to “manage any of the main pressures on them”. At outstanding providers, there will be “high levels of support for staff for well-being issues.” 

This leadership course will provide nursery managers with the skills and knowledge to encourage emotional intelligence and well-being within the staff team.  You will learn how to develop a supportive staff culture and team ethos.

Attending this course will help you create a highly resilient and positive workforce, well equipped to deliver the best outcomes for children in your care.
