    Characteristics of Effective Learning and Schemas

    Course Aim: This introductory course offers an overview of the characteristics of effective learning and schemas.

    Course Information: The EYFS defines characteristics of effective learning as

    • Playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things and 'have a go'
    • Active learning - children concentrate and keep trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
    • Creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas and develop strategies for doing things

    How children learn is just as important as what children are learning. This course will provide guidance for practitioners about what the characteristics are and how we can use them effectively when reflecting on the quality of children’s learning. A schema is a pattern of repeated actions and the awareness of schemas will help practitioners describe how children approach their learning.  The role of the adult is critical in observing, identifying and understanding the 3 key characteristics and children’s fascinations to gain a better awareness of how to enable children to become lifelong learners.

    Suitable ForAny Early Years Practitioners     

    Delivered by: Kate Beevers who is a qualified teacher with over 25 years experience of working with children and their families: in Schools, Early Years settings, and as an Adult Education tutor.

At the end you will undertake a short test and if successful receive a certificate for your CPD file. All the courses are included in the cost and access is for one year from registration.

    It's a great way for practitioners to upskill at their own pace, but also to pick a course to help with a specific issue - for example there is a course on dealing with biting. If you have a child who starts biting, any members of your team who are registered with NoodleNow can do the course as a refresher and come up with a plan of action.

    We think that these courses will complement our 'live' training and provide you with another option for keeping your practice fresh and relevant.

    Course included in the package cover everything from food safety, manual handling, physical development and outstanding practice. You can see the full list of courses here.

    Cost (PATA Members only):

    We are able to offer access to our members for 

    £25 per person (no additional VAT) with no minimum number and including Noodle Nibbles.

    (Individual membership is usually £99+VAT or organisational membership (with a minimum of 5 people) is usually £25+VAT per person (so a minimum of £150). There is also a ‘bolt on’ package of short courses called Noodle Nibbles which are usually an extra £5+VAT per person which will be included in your package.)

    The access will last for a year and you can do as many of the courses in that time as you wish for no additional costs.

    Liz Pemberton, The Black Nursery Manager, presents 'How to Explore Race with Children in Early Years Settings’

    Embedding cultures and diversity within an early years setting is a vital part of the EYFS. Children and their families will feel valued by the setting if resources and displays represent the ethnic, cultural and social diversity in society, and if they can see their own family background and culture represented as well as those of others. True inclusion means your setting will have diversity running through its core regardless of your current make-up of families on role.

    Course Aim: To promote inclusive practice in the Early Years (under 5's) education sector, with a particular focus on how race, culture and anti-racism should be considered in this practice.

    Session 1: Statutory and Non-Statutory Guidance: This first session will look closely at how some of the statutory and non-statutory guidance can support us to work towards anti-racist practice. We will closely examine how the Development Matters and Birth to Five Matters documents can be interpreted to support our journey towards anti-racist practice.

    Session 2 : Conversations: How do we prepare ourselves for unexpected conversations about race when children ask ? This session will look at language and how we can best educate ourselves to ensure that we are equipped. This session will also look at how we engage families appropriately.

    Session 3: Resources: How do you audit your existing resources to help ensure an anti-racist approach is supported in the setting ? How can we ensure that our practice goes beyond having Black dolls and a range of different coloured crayons ? How do we move towards a whole team approach to continuously work towards creating an anti-racist environment?


    Suitable For: Anyone working with children under the age of 5.

    Dates: Wednesday 8th, 15th and 22nd May

    Time:  4:00pm - 5:30pm

    Venue: on-line webinar

    Cost:  members £30 / non members £35 (for all three sessions). (It is not compulsory to attend all three sessions, however, the same person named on the booking must attend the session(s))

    SEND - The Building Blocks of Behaviour - seeking connection not control

    This interactive online course is an opportunity for us to explore one of the biggest topics in early childhood - behaviour. Developing relational approaches can be difficult when we are faced with lots of different emotions, feelings and behaviours. This course addresses some of the key ways in which we can develop boundaries that help us to connect with rather than control children. Through the session you will come to understand;

    • What is meant by developmentally appropriate behaviour, and how to understand in the context of expressing needs.
    • The differences between top-down and bottom-up behaviours, and why we must be flexible in behaviour support. 
    • The importance of helping children to move through moods.
    • How to move beyond correcting and controlling behaviour, but instead connecting with the behaviour, and therefore the child.
    • Why wellbeing and well-doing is crucial in behaviour support. 
    • The Behaviour in children aged 2 to 6 years

    This course will include a digital workbook, certificate, and you will complete some interactive gap tasks.
