Training for early years and childcare providers in Brighton & Hove

Welcome to the early years and childcare training programme

We have an extensive programme of training courses for Early Years providers in the city. Our courses cover Safeguarding, Equalities, Prevent, British Values, the Early Years Foundation Stage and more.

You can find details of the courses, including dates and costs, on the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway. Before you book, it's important that you know about the terms and conditions around cancellations. If the Early Years team cancel training due to bad weather, low take up or any other reason, a full refund will be offered. If you apply and pay for a place on a course, but then later need to cancel, we are unable to offer a refund (but the place can be transferred to someone else within the setting).

Cost to attend our training

Apart from courses marked * which are free to attend, these are the standard charges to attend courses on the Early Years and Childcare training programme:

  • A full day course is £60 and a half day is £40 per person for Brighton & Hove childcare providers
  • A full day course is £100 and a half day is £60 per person for Brighton & Hove schools, non childcare providers and organisations outside of the city
  • Details of the cost of our e-learning courses can be found on the flyers.
