The Characteristics of Effective Learning are described as the way that children learn. By identifying their motivation for learning, higher quality teaching and learning will take place. This is a switch to process over outcome, which is highly important when working with children in the early years, recognising that the attitudes about learning formed in the early years will last a lifetime. The early year's assessment process is key to supporting effective learning.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requires that parents and carers must be supplied with a short written summary of their child’s development in the three prime learning and development areas of the EYFS: Personal, Social, and Emotional Development when the child is aged between 24-36 months. This course will enable staff to fully understand their obligations regarding EYFS progress checks and will provide them with useful methods of baselining, measuring, and tracking to develop the child’s learning journey.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To have a clearer understanding of the importance of tracking children’s progress
  2. To identify the ‘how's’ of narrowing gaps in attainment
  3. To reflect on your own setting and the validity, reliability, and authenticity of tracking
  4. To explore how this fits into the observation, assessment, and planning cycle

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.
