About Hampshire Early Years Training and Consultancy (HEYTC)

Training and support is delivered by our qualified and experienced team of advisors

We have a strong reputation for delivering high quality training and support to early years and childcare providers as well as providing a trusted perspective on early years pedagogy and practice 

Training and support is current and can be individually tailored

HEYTC members have experience in the the early years and childcare sector either as practitioners, teachers, managers/leaders or as trainers or support officers. Some team members also have Ofsted Inspection experience and commercial business knowledge.

We offer a range of flexible opportunities

Our experience and knowledge ensures we understand the challenges faced by providers and practitioners on a daily basis. Our support/training packages help providers to meet their individual needs to improve the well being and raising of outcomes for children.

Team members also challenge and guide childcare practitioners towards being self managing in their delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and in services for the under 5's and their families.
