Abstract

In response to the ongoing policy drive in the UK to improve the skills level of the early years (EY) workforce, raise the quality of early years education (EYE), and reduce the disadvantage gap for young children, a systematic review was conducted on approaches to professional learning and development (PDL) that report impact on outcomes for children in EYE. The aim of the review, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, was to consider the impact of PDL approaches in the ongoing UK context. However, of the 24 studies considered, none were conducted in the UK, suggesting that much more work is needed in this area. The review showed that approaches to PDL which combine coaching, with new knowledge and opportunities for reflection on practice, may be most effective in improving outcomes in EY settings. However, the evidence on duration, frequency and intensity of PDL, though likely to be important factors in the degree of effectiveness, is inconclusive and requires further research.
