I CAN Early Talk

I CAN Early Talk supports early years’ practitioners to improve speech, language and communication (SLC) for children aged 0-3.

I CAN Early Talk supports early years practitioners with children’s communication and language development.

It works with childcare and education providers, such as nurseries, childminders and schools, who are registered to deliver early education for two-year olds in the Better Start Bradford area. BHT Early Education and Training are delivering the following I CAN courses:

  • Early Talk 0-5 Working with Under 3’s
  • Early Talk 0-5 Working with Parents to Early Years Practitioners

They also support early years providers to achieve the I CAN accreditation.

Who’s it for?

Practitioners within early years settings who are registered to deliver early education for funded two-year olds (including childminders and schools).

Where and when is it delivered?

Training is provided in the group’s own early years’ setting. Individuals, such as childminders, will also be invited to join group training sessions where appropriate. Training sessions are held as requested by the childcare/education provider. Training for Early Talk 0-5 Working with Under 3’s and Early Talk 0-5 Working with Parents to Early Years Practitioners is equivalent to one day per course and can be delivered in one 5-hour session, two separate 2.5 hour sessions or via two 2.5 hour twilight sessions, whatever is best for the child care/education provider. Mentoring to support accreditation is set at one day per term.

How do families book on/register? Families cannot register onto this project. The project is for employees, practitioners and partners in the Better Start Bradford area who work with funded two-year olds in their setting.
