The Early Learning Partnership (ELP) Training & Assessment Centre

The ELP Training & Assessment Centre, working in partnership with Transform and Aspire, is a newly opened facility dedicated to providing the highest quality childcare training in South Tyneside. We are a Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education (CACHE) registered centre and deliver a range of qualifications from level 2 - level 4. We also have an exciting, comprehensive CPD training programme that will ensure that all our learners can meet all their training needs.

The centre is partnered with all of our Nurseries in South Tyneside (Harton Village Kindergarten, Westoe Village Kindergarten, West Park Kindergarten and Bede Burn Kindergarten) in order to both provide high quality training to all our staff in order to maintain the highest standards across all of our settings, but also to make the same training available to all practitioners who work with children and young people, childminders, parents and others who might be interested in our training courses.
