  • examine the role of the adult in supporting and extending children’s thinking in both adult-led and child-led situations
  • observe DVD material to analyse how a range of practitioners make the most of both learning situations

About the trainer:

Julie Fisher is an independent Early Years Adviser and Visiting Professor of Early Childhood Education at Oxford Brookes University. She held the post of Early Years Adviser in Oxfordshire for 11 years, before which she was lecturer in early childhood education at the University of Reading.

To underpin her consultancy work, Julie draws on her own research projects which engage her in constant contact with practitioners and children in both schools and settings. She is author of numerous articles on early childhood education as well as her books Starting from the Child (2013-now in its 4th edition); The Foundations of Learning (2002); Moving On to Key Stage One (2010) and her recent best-selling book Interacting or Interfering? (2016). Julie has recently won the coveted Nursery World Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to early childhood education.

Julie is currently offering training and conference presentations on all aspects of Adult-Child Interaction; The Role of the Adult; Balancing adult-led and child-led learning; Transition from EYFS to KS1, and Classroom Management. In all her training she is able to draw on extensive DVD footage gathered during her research projects, to exemplify effective practice with children from 6 months to 6 years.
