Early Years Training

Scottish Book Trust’s early years training programme offers a wide selection of CPD courses aimed at early years practitioners and professionals who work with children under five.

Booking a training course

We offer courses on book sharing skills, leading Bookbug Sessions, gifting the Bookbug packs and a wide range of other topics linked to early literacy and child development. Training is delivered by our team of trainers. For further information on these courses please see our course description section.

Scottish Book Trust is also pleased to offer bespoke training and conference presentations. We will be happy to work with you or your organisation to plan the content and format.

If travel budgets are tight, we would be delighted to provide training in your local authority. Our training is flexible and can also be offered as a twilight session to suit your group. For further information please contact kirsty.sinclair@scottishbooktrust.com

What people say about our training courses

Bookbug Training

“Found this course fantastic! I can honestly say that I wasn’t bored once. Normally at training sessions it can be too much sitting around trying to take information in, but because it was very "hands-on" I felt that I learned more."

Participant, Bookbug Session Training, March 2011

“I’ve been teaching for over 20 years and this is the most interesting and informative CPD session I have attended.”

"All of the attendees (a mixture of Educational Psychologists, Head teachers, SENCOs and Infant Teachers) were extremely impressed with the quality of the presentation materials and the delivery of the training."
