Equality Act in the Early Years training for practitioners

partner news

This training, delivered by our EYSEND Partner Council for Disabled Children (CDC), goes into depth on early years practitioners' duties in accordance with the Equality Act.

This training is for Early Years practitioners in family hub local areas.

The training session will;

  • Summarise how the disability duties in the Equality Act apply in the early years;
  • Consider how the definition of disability applies to young children;
  • Consider what the data tells us about patterns in access and inclusion for young disabled children.
  • Support early years practitioners to understand how the Equality Act applies to their daily practice.
