"The STEEP course has shown me how important it is to work with the child as well as their families. Working with experienced early years practitioners has been a great opportunity for me to learn first-hand about the early years curriculum and how children learn through various learning styles. I had the chance to work with supportive mentors who have supported me throughout the process of what are the aspects of a child’s early development and how it looks in an effective environment. STEEP is a family where I have grown to become a confident early years teacher".

I was told about the STEEP course by a (very excited) Early Years colleague who attended a STEEP conference at Goldsmiths a few years ago. Her words ‘YOU MUST APPLY FOR STEEP!’ stuck with me and I’ve been working towards this course ever since. I am so delighted with the experience so far. I feel really supported by everyone at school and at Goldsmiths which makes learning on this course really enjoyable.
