The EYTA Hub provides a set of evidence-based tools and resources for local commissioners, service managers and practitioners working in maternity and early years support.
These tools and resources have been developed as part of the Early Years Transformation Academy applied strand – a 12-month intensive guided learning programme run by EIF and its partners. Find out more.
The resources on the EYTA Hub are made available via the Early Years Transformation Academy learning strand, which provides open access to information about evidence, implementation, system and workforce development in the early years, with a particular focus on helping to achieve improvements and system-wide changes at the local level.
EIF is partnering with five authorities in the first Academy cohort: Barking & Dagenham, Dudley, Norfolk, Sandwell and Westminster / Kensington & Chelsea. Each area has assembled an EYTA team of six to eight local system or service leaders with responsibility for maternity or early years support.
The programme, running from April 2019 until March 2020, offers an opportunity to explore new approaches and innovate, consolidate local planning, access independent support and challenge, and invest in leadership development.
