The material in these PDMs is intended to support quality improvement on the theme of early assessment. The aim of the PDMs is to enable Early Years consultants (EYCs) to help practitioners identify children’s starting points and their next steps in learning. These suggestions for continuing professional development (CPD) will need to be tailored to meet the specific needs of the participants. These PDMs are part of a suite of materials; refer to page 30 of the Early Years Quality Improvement Support Programme (QISP), reference: 00669-2008BKT-EN, for further details about PDMs and CPD.
