Training that has impact!
Making a difference
With such a busy working environment and budgets that are always tight, it’s often hard to prioritise training, but it’s important to remember that training can make a real difference to your Early Years setting and can really boost staff moral. Team training sparks enthusiasm and inspiration among your staff. Training staff all together can also save you a fortune on covering and paying for individual “lone” training days. So already we’re saving money!
I know from personal experience at my own two Early Years settings, that employing a recognised trainer to work with my team has initiated improvements that a manager would find hard to implement alone. It gets all your staff working together for a single aim, giving the team unity and a sense of togetherness, and even the magic word: excitement as they quickly see the benefits of what they have learned.
As well as learning new things, training can help you drop some old (and often time consuming) bad habits. It’s very easy in Early Years with constantly changing goal posts to add yet another piece of paper work for you to fill in. Training can help you stream-line your systems to give you more time for the work you enjoy, or enable you to finally get home from work on time! Whatever your personal and business goals, training is well worth the time and expense in the long run. That work-life balance and Outstanding Ofsted is closer than you think!
