Welcome to the Bristol Early Years Teaching School Alliance

Continued Professional Development Programme for Nurseries and Primary Schools

Formerly the Bristol Early Years Teaching Consortium (BEYTC)


We are pleased to launch our 20-21 CPD offer, which has been developed to reflect the national reforms of the EYFS, and support School/Early Years settings in addressing local priorities. All our programmes are delivered by experienced trainers and leaders.

Further details of our courses can be found on our website along with our terms and conditions for booking.

Due to COVID-19, most of our training is now offered as shorter, online sessions via Zoom. These sessions are fully interactive, therefore not webinars, and will all involve an element of self-reflection, and opportunities to question new theory and develop practice. The sessions are delivered in a way that facilitates learning conversations, makes connections and builds a supportive virtual learning community.

The face to face training will be delivered in a COVID safe environment, with strict health and safety protocols and procedures. Each session is supported with a range of resources and follow-up materials, and we would encourage participants to share and embed their new learning once back in their home settings.

All programmes will support and complement “The Bristol Standard Quality Improvement for Birth to 5” framework and submission.

We look forward to welcoming you onto our programme.

The Bristol Early Years Teaching School Alliance (BEYTC) is a hub for Early Years settings and Primary Schools who wish to collaborate, learn together, question, challenge and innovate to improve provision and achievement for our youngest learners. We have great ambition. It is led by St Pauls Nursery School and Children’s Centre, who was awarded National Teaching School status in 2012 and is judged as outstanding by Ofsted.


BEYTC has a wealth of expertise in delivering high quality training locally and Nationally, which has long lasting impact on the quality of provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

All our training involves an element of self-reflection and/or practitioner research and requires active engagement. Feedback from all our courses indicates a high level of satisfaction with the learning experiences we provide.
