The Children’s Centre Leaders Network (CCLN) is a professional learning network for all foundation years leaders. It provides the opportunity to work with other foundation years leaders to improve practice, share experience and develop expertise.
You should be in a leadership position within a designated Sure Start children's centre.
The network is a self-sustaining professional learning community, which gives members the opportunity to:
As part of CCLN, you will have access to regional networking events and an online group (member resource). There is also a reference group, which informs the Department for Education of the needs of children's centre leaders.
There is no formal application process. If you would like to become part of the network, you can join the online group (member resource).
There's no cost to join the network. However, you will need to pay for your own travel, subsistence and supply cover costs for attendance at the sessions.
"Always an excellent opportunity to meet and network with other children's centre leaders and share practice and problem solving."
