National Síolta Aistear initiative

Welcome to the National Síolta Aistear Initiative (NSAI) Continuing Professional Development

The learning experiences in this CPD have been developed to support early years practitioners in becoming familiar with some of the resources on the Aistear Síolta Practice Guide. Please note that you can view and edit the learning experiences with Adobe Acrobat only. You can read how to do this by clicking this link here.

Each learning experience:
  • Contains viewing and reading materials to support you in your professional role working with Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Síolta: the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education
  • Is linked to Aistear’s themes and Síolta’s standards
  • Contains a section at the end for key reflections on learning and possible future actions.
