3 Things You Didn't Know About Broaden's Partner, NoodleNow

Updated: Dec 3, 2021

Being a childcare professional, you inspire children to be confident and resilient to help them prepare for what's to come in life. You instill the knowledge and skills they require to become the best versions of themselves. This is why your tailored training is crucial to help them throughout their development phase.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is ongoing training that enables childcare professionals to adapt their ideas and approaches in light of new information and keeps them updated about the regularly changing theories and practices. Although many course providers cater to early years' practitioners, most fail to address the practical aspect of training to help the educators implement the course knowledge to upskill their careers.

To bridge this gap, Broaden's partner NoodleNow provides a high-quality early years training programme that not only equips the educators with necessary skills and knowledge but keeps evidence-based practice at the core of its provision. Learn more about this exciting training opportunity and how you can upgrade your skills through its advanced courses.
