Realising the potential of early intervention: The early years, London
EIF is holding a series of evidence seminars across England for local leaders and commissioners responsible for maternity and early years services. The seminars will provide an insight into the latest evidence for early childhood development, and will explore the implications for system and service design.
Attendees can expect to:
- Review the case for early intervention in the early years in the current public service context
- Hear about the latest evidence on childhood competencies and health child development from Kirsten Asmussen, the author of ‘Key competencies in early cognitive development: Things, people, numbers and words’, and ‘What works to enhance the effectiveness of the Healthy Child Programme: An evidence update’
- Explore the implications of evidence for system transformation
In addition to this half-day seminar, we are also organising an afternoon workshop with details below. If you would like to attend, please click "yes" when prompted during the ticket booking process for the morning seminar.
Market Engagement Workshop: Early Years Transformation Academy
EIF is running a workshop for local areas that are preparing bids to partner with EIF in the Applied Strand of the Early Years Transformation Academy.
The Transformation Academy (Applied Strand) is a new initiative to support the capability of local areas to use evidence in the design of maternity and early years systems. EIF, in partnership with four local areas, will use an intensive applied learning programme to enable teams of local leaders and commissioners to create a plan to transform the local early years system.The Academy includes modules on preparing for implementation, identifying vulnerable populations, system planning and measuring impact.
For more information on the Transformation Academy you can read this blog by Ben Lewing, and further information will be added to this page as it becomes available.
The workshop will include lunch, and will cover key principles, core programme elements, expectations of sites, and the delivery schedule. There will also be a surgery for individual advice on bidding.
