To achieve Early Years Professional Status candidates must demonstrate that they have effectively led the professional practice of their colleagues across the 0-5 age range.

It explains the nature of leadership and the EYP's role in promoting good practice and appropriate values and principles. This new edition has been fully revised and updated and includes new chapters on leading practice in a multi-professional context and the leader of practice as an agent of change.
