Early Years Teachers

Volume 453: debated on Monday 27 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much was spent in each of the last five years supporting early years teachers with funding towards their continued professional development. (101952)

Early years teachers employed in schools may access schools’ budgets for funds to support their continuing professional development (CPD). In addition an element of the General Sure Start Grant may be used to fund the CPD of early years teachers and other early years staff working across maintained and other settings. Decisions about the actual amount of expenditure deployed in this way are made locally by schools and local authorities.
