You have been given free access to our programme of inclusive training courses thanks to Comic Relief funding.

These courses have been developed using our specialist knowledge of early years SEND provision over the last 40 years, and have been designed with the aim of building confidence in early years practitioners.

The practical elements of these courses provide information and strategies to support those working with children with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to work more inclusively.

Find out more about the programme and how to sign up below.


Training Content: All courses are provided on an online self-guided study basis and include practical activities and webinars.

Time needed: Each course takes approximately 8 hours to complete.

Who is it for?: Anyone who works in or with children in the early years across our participating Local Authorities, including SENCos, practitioners, childminders and local authority early years staff. It may also benefit parents and carers of children with SEND.

Support: Email support from our training team, access to resource documents and videos.

Recognition: Certificate of completion from Dingley’s Promise.
