Leeds Find Your Talent has been succesful in its bid to become an Earlyarts Pathfinder Partner.

Earlyarts, a nationwide training network for professionals working creatively with young children and families, today announced its twenty three Pathfinder Partners to roll out the professional development programme across the regions.

Pathfinder Partners were chosen for their excellent track record in training and creative development of the arts, cultural and early years workforce. Earlyarts’ Pathfinder Programme is an innovative approach to build a sustainable social enterprise that enables the myriad of smaller creativity and early education networks to join forces across the country. The aim is to have a major impact by joining up practice to meet the needs of young children and families. The social enterprise model enables partners to share in the collected knowledge of what makes a difference to children’s lives, at the same time as building a strong network of ‘champions’ for creative learning who will be better skilled to improve practice on the ground for many years to come.

Pathfinder Partners will be delivering Earlyarts’ highly popular Professional Development Days across all regions, ensuring that every professional that works with children and families will be able to access creative training in their area.
