Early years and childcare training courses

Our courses have been designed to give clear information to early years and childcare practitioners. This will help you meet the required legal standards and prepare you for registration and inspection by Ofsted.

Courses are open to all early years foundation stage, childcare and play practitioners who work in Trafford. This includes nannies, youth teams and sports coaches including those on the Ofsted voluntary register. Practitioners working in areas outside of Trafford are also eligible but this is subject to an additional charge.

You can view the training programme at Trafford early years training. To book onto a course, you will first need to join the membership scheme. After joining, you will receive a login for the early years training system which is used to manage bookings.


There is a £20 per person membership fee for the academic year. This allows you to access face to face courses and e-learning. There is an additional fee for each face to face course. You must become a member before booking a place on a course.  Join now by completing our membership application form.
