Foundation Stage

CCEA developed a three-year regional programme consisting of one-off, face-to-face Capacity Building sessions for Foundation Stage (FS) Co-ordinators. These sessions took place from 2017 to 2019, and a total of 638 teachers attended.

The purpose of the sessions was to help facilitate the Learning Leaders Strategy by supporting the FS Co-ordinator to make links between the strategy, the documentation and the support materials currently available. Please follow these links to access the relevant documentation:

CCEA has also developed a dedicated online area with courses and information for Foundation Stage teachers: Foundation Stage: Teacher Professional Learning. This contains the following eight resources:

  • Tracking Progression
  • Transition and Engaging Parents
  • Observational Assessment
  • Practice and Progression
  • Using ICT
  • Engaging Boys
  • The Learning Environment
  • Classroom Assistants.

Three more resources will be available in 2020.

We are also carrying out a short online survey on how useful the courses are to you. See the Foundation Stage TPL Courses Questionnaire here.
