I'm new - I want to get involved in this piece of work

If you or your local area wants to get involved in CDC’s work to improve access and inclusion in the early years, we would love to work with you. Our expert team has a rigorous understanding of the legal and policy frameworks allied to a practical understanding of how to make it work at a local level. Our team includes nationally recognised leaders in the fields of health, education, and early years.

The evaluation of our work has shown what local areas have really valued about our self-review and action learning set approach:

  • “A clear structure for discussions which enabled the right priorities to be identified”
  • “Understating what other areas have been able to achieve and what lessons we can apply our own area”
  • “The ability to make a more persuasive case to other colleagues for changes and/or investment”
  • “The confidence and impetus to sustain progress over time”

Our approach also has a demonstrable impact on the work of local areas.


If you would like to work with us we can provide you with the following package of our support:

Personalised offer of support to individual areas
  • A personalised action learning set for your local area in Spring or Summer 2018 including:
    • An analysis of your area’s progress to date;
    • A briefing on the latest developments in policy practice and law;
    • A chance to review your priorities with support from our expert staff;
    • The identification of new actions and areas for development.
  • A second action learning set in Autumn or Winter 2018 to sustain your progress;
  • Support from our expert staff in between action learning sets.

Cost: £2,500 + VAT
