Supporting you and your business growth
Providing professional advice, information & guidance
We are delighted to announce the launch of the new Early Years Business Support team. We have developed a generic business support email which can be used by all Gloucestershire Early Years Providers requiring business support.
"It is really nice to have all this information given from yourselves via a newsletter and is a really good way to prompt us providers to double check both legislation and all the business side of everything is up to date."
The support provided within the team can include:
- Access to Gloucestershire business tools, factsheets, case studies, templates and training
- Signposting to external sources for advice and support
- Face to face sessions
- One to one support
Contact a Early Years Provider Forum Representative
There are a lot of different local and national policies impacting on childcare providers and we ensure that through the Early Years Education Provider Forum we supply relevant and useful feedback to the local authority of issues that directly impact on our sector.
The Forum meets 6 times a year and is made up of Early Years Practitioners from a variety of types of Early Years provision. Two of our members also sit on the Schools Forum which meets at Shire Hall, and they provide a voice for Early Years within the wider education agenda.
