Training directory 2019/20

This directory lists courses for September 2019 to July 2020.  It is designed to meet the training needs of early years foundation stage practitioners in the private, voluntary, independent and maintained sectors including day nurseries and pre-schools, childminders, schools, academies and family hubs.

We use Cornwall Learning Online for all bookings. To apply for courses you will need to set up a user account which will enable you to book, cancel and manage your training.  Please ensure that you provide a valid email address when applying for courses as all training will be confirmed, cancelled or updated by email.  Telephone bookings will not be accepted.

Book training through Cornwall Learning Online

If you are accessing the training directory via the Cornwall Council website a link on each course page will direct you to the booking system.  Courses administered by the Early Years Learning and Development Team will have a course number prefixed with ‘EYFS’, 'ALL' 'OF' or 'EFA'.  You can use these prefixes to search for our courses on the new system.

Please ensure that:

  • the email address you provide for confirmation details is correct;
  • applications are received at least 7 days before the course date;
  • you keep a record of all bookings made;
  • you have received confirmation of your place on the course before attending.  If you just turn up you may be turned away.

There is a helpful user guide on Cornwall Learning Online and also a guide for CPD leaders in settings and schools who would like to book training on behalf of their staff.

We will acknowledge all course bookings by email.  Confirmation details will be sent out by email only 2-3 weeks before the course date.  Please ensure you regularly check your email inbox and junk folder.

Unless stated otherwise the full course fee will be charged for all cancellations received less than 7 days before the start of the course.  If the course is free you will be charged £10.00.  This is due to the unavoidable costs that will have already been incurred.  

Please ensure that you cancel by 10.00am at least 7 days before the start of the course to avoid cancellation fees.  You can cancel your place by:

Alternatively we will accept substitute delegates.

If you attend a course but do not sign the register we will assume that you ‘did not attend’ and we will charge the cancellation fee.  Please ensure that you sign the register so that your setting does not incur unnecessary charges.
