About This Training
The Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Charter and Guidelines for Early Childhood Care and Education are intended to support and guide all those working in the early childhood care and education sector to explore, understand and develop inclusive practices for the benefit of all children and their families.
Topics included in the Equality and Diversity training:
Stages of discrimination
Reviewing the Early Years environment
About Access and Inclusion Model (AIM)
The purpose of the new Inclusion Charter is to demonstrate the sector’s commitment to inclusion. Service providers are asked to sign up to the Charter by completing an inclusion policy for their setting. For reference purposes, an Inclusion Policy template is contained within the Guidelines.
To support this process, updated Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Guidelines for Early Childhood Care and Education have been produced and each childcare service should have received a copy. We are now in a position to offer the national training programme on the Inclusion Charter and the Guidelines.
Appendix 2 of your ECCE contract states:
AIM Level 1
The Registered Provider will engage with the CCC and participate in the Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Charter and Guidelines training. On completion of the training, the Registered Provider must sign up to a National Inclusion Charter and create their own Early Childhood Care and Education National Inclusion Policy.
