The experienced staff team is made up with nursery nurses qualified to at least level 3 and an apprentice nursery nurse, and an early year’s teacher. The team is supported by the leadership and admin teams based at Charnwood Heaton Moor. Throughout each year, all Charnwood trust employees have staff team training together, so that existing skills can be updated, and new skills learnt. Significant training also takes place through modelling of good practice and team discussion and planning. Individually, staff training needs are assessed, and they are encouraged to attend courses and conferences.
