Paragon Skills partner with Early Years Leadership to provide additional support to early years settings.

Are you an early years leader looking for support, guidance and development? At Paragon Skills we recognise that as a leader in the early years sector you are faced with many challenges including balancing the demands of a highly regulated sector with that of growing and running your business. Paragon Skills can support with training and development, including recruitment of new team members, but we understand that there are many other aspects to running your early years business and have therefore partnered with Early Years Leadership to provide a wider range of support to our employer partners.

Early Years Leadership is a membership community, allowing leaders and aspiring leaders to share common values, have their voice heard and come together to improve leadership across the early years. Early years leaders, nursery managers, childminders and business owners work tirelessly to support children and families and Paragon Skills alongside Early Years Leadership are here to support you in that journey. Through a range of projects, training delivery and our online membership, Early Years Leadership empowers and enables leaders to be the best that they can be, improving long term outcomes for children and families.

Early Years Leadership – formally The Key Leadership – was founded by early years professionals, Kelly & Bev, in February 2020 in response to a gap in the sector for support for early years leaders and aspiring leaders.

In 2021, the business was converted into a not for profit, Community Interest Company to demonstrate the commitment to reinvesting into the sector. Kelly now drives the business forward with Bev and Suzanne as non-executive directors and board members.

They have created a community where leaders come together daily to access news and learning opportunities and share best practice across the sector and within their communities.

Speaking of the partnership, Early Years Leadership said:

‘We are thrilled to work in collaboration with Paragon Skills to inspire the next generation of early years apprentices, to learn and love the industry as much as we do.’

Inspired leadership will change the course of early education, upskill early educators and improve outcomes for families and children. To find out more and to sign up for a 7-day free access to the Leadership Lounge follow this link.
