Whether you’re a teacher or other practitioner looking to help your pupils to excel, or a parent wanting to give your child the very best start in their learning, Leading Children is here to offer you the tools to make it happen.
Transformative in-service training for teachers, middle leaders, SLT, NQTs, and other practitioners from Early Years through to Key Stage 4. Our training is provided in-setting, online or hosted at our vibrant training base in Bradford, Yorkshire.
We offer a comprehensive range of bespoke consultancy services for your setting. Delivered in a professional and encouraging manner, we are passionate about having an effective and immediate impact.
Passive toys with pre-recorded responses and movie spin-offs limit children’s imagination and cap higher-order thinking skills. We only sell high-quality, open-ended resources that will enable children to attain the highest levels of development through their play.
