Once Champions have established the ‘time to talk’™ strategy in their EY Settings and Children’s Centres, they are invited to prepare a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their work. There is a list of criteria that must be fulfilled, and the Champion then submits the evidence to the ‘time to talk’™ team. If all the criteria are met, the certificate can be awarded. There is no pass or fail! If there is something missing, or not quite meeting the criteria, Champions can re-submit their portfolio at a later date.
The document listing all the criteria and evidence is saved in the ‘resources to download and print’ section of the champions tab here. It is called ‘Time to Talk Award supporting document Champion version’.
Alcester Nursery Studio were one of our first settings to achieve their enhanced certificate and they were featured in the local newspaper.
