    This is the essential handbook to support you as you work towards Early Years Professional Status.

    Taking a standard-by-standard approach, this text uses a balance of leadership and personal practice examples to guide you through achieving EYPS. Examining each of the 39 standards in turn, the book deconstructs their meaning and considers and offers advice on the best approaches to evidence them.

    Key features:

    • Each standard is 'unpicked', with difficult terminology explained and examples given of how the standards might translate into practice
    • Interactive Reflection Points within chapters allow you to reflect on and improve your practice
    • Provides a wealth of leadership and personal practice examples
