As the early years sector matures it will take on its own responsibility to evolve, improve and innovate. Strong, child centred and family visionaries who can motivate and empower staff will be crucial as system leaders.
Pen Green Research Centre has set up a national network of ten Early Years Teaching Centres to lead research in this area.
The National College is playing a crucial role in developing leadership and management through specific Foundation Years projects.
The National College works to develop and inspire great leaders of schools, early years settings and children’s services so that they can make a positive difference to children’s lives. It has the remit to provide leadership development for children’s centre leaders and to develop approaches to foundation years system leadership, to build capacity and capability. The aim is to enable sector-led systems and quality improvement. www.nationalcollege.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org
