Introduction to Early Years and Schools

ELA delivers high quality apprenticeships and short courses. We have expertise across a range of education settings, such as early years, private and public schools, and special needs provisions. We aspire to support committed, passionate teachers, support staff, school leadership and administration to achieve their goals. Our team has a huge passion for learning that makes a difference, and not training for training's sake.
