This training will provide delegates with an understanding of the theory and neuroscience behind early child development and the importance of nurture on the developing brain.

It focuses on how to support teachers and key adults to interpret and understand the children and young people‚Äôs behaviours through an early developmental lens and explore strategies to support the pupils they work with.
