Learning to Learn - A Framework for Early Years Education and Learning

The Education Minister, John O’Dowd, published Learning to Learn – A Framework for Early Years Education and Learning.

The Learning to Learn framework provides a clear policy focus for the Department of Education and the forthcoming Education and Skills Authority, where the investment in early years education and learning provision is directly linked to supporting high quality services, across a range of providers, to deliver better outcomes for children and their families. It also provides a framework for enhanced coordination and collaboration across departments and agencies.

The Learning to Learn Framework, the Summary Report of Responses to the Focused Consultation (which ended on 31 January 2013) and the original consultation documents are available to download in PDF format.
