The Toolkit is designed to give:

  • Opportunities to assess and moderate between partners and/or in-house
  • Opportunities to develop knowledge and give clarity to Development Matters statements across all age bands
  • Support to share good practice
  • Support to promote quality observational assessment, strategies and techniques
  • Opportunities to enhance and promote seamless and robust transitions
