Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Information

Dingley's Promise

Dingley’s Promise offer a free online training programme for the whole of the early year's workforce, across education, health and social care.

The training aims to empower early years practitioners to deliver fully inclusive practice through sharing ideas, information and learning resources. This will develop confidence in recognising the differing needs of children and supporting the learning and well-being of all children in their setting.

The project also involves meaningful parental partnership working, via engagement in Local Stakeholder Groups and parent representation in the overarching National Project Steering Group

This group will include members of national inclusion organisations, parent/carer representatives, professionals from the LAs that are taking part, the Department for Education and our funders. The group will make recommendations to be shared both nationally and internationally, and, where appropriate, will lobby for change.

We encourage everyone, early years professionals and East Riding Parents to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to participate in both the training and steering groups to help create a lasting legacy.
