Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programmes provided by MOSAIC are hugely successful all across the country. The secret to MOSAIC CPD is its uncomplicated format, enabling Educators to refresh and up-skill in specific areas of pedagogical practice.
A tried and tested MOSAIC delivery model adopts a practical, jargon free approach with high levels of transferrable learning to practice outcomes. In everyday terms, when time is precious and tasks are high, this is what Educators need from CPD!
MOSAIC programmes are underpinned by the principles and objectives of early childhood quality and regulatory frameworks – however, they are delivered in an accessible, common sense style that enables Educators to make real and sustainable changes and improvements to everyday practice.
We offer practical explanations and tools that will streamline your work and provide clarity where confusion and overthinking may have taken over!
