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.

Study Days

Book on to one of our bespoke study days. This is a hugely popular form of professional development and both our National Teaching Schools have welcomed visitors from all over the UK and beyond.

As National Teaching Schools we have particular expertise in Research, Leadership Development, Initial Teacher training and have developed interesting models of collaboration with the Local Authority as partners in School Improvement.
