This book supports all candidates for Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) as they prepare for the Validation Process. Through a series of reflective activities based on case studies of successful candidates, this book helps those on the EYP pathway prepare for assessment and build confidence in their own good practice and skills. This second edition incorporates the changes to the assessment requirements introduced in September 2008 and references the new Candidate's Handbook.
