Early Years Team Work and Leadership
not available (2016-04)
Although early years settings operate in a variety of contexts, one thing they have in common is that a number of adults are involved. The complex and demanding nature of safeguarding and promoting young children’s welfare, learning and development means practitioners cannot work in isolation from colleagues and other professionals. Early childhood services involve people, relationships and feelings and interactions between adults, whether formal or informal, and have a crucial impact on the quality of the provision. This free course explores aspects of teamwork and leadership for early years practitioners. After studying this course, you should be able to understand the concept of leadership in the early years, demonstrate an awareness of factors that influence leadership and teamwork, understand how teamwork can support leadership skills, and reflect on personal leadership and teamwork skills.
