The Professional Pedagogy Project (PPP) was a framework of professional development and supports encompassing a training programme and a variety of follow-on mentoring supports aimed at enabling early childhood service providers to make steady, quantifiable changes and improvements to their early education practice.
Underpinned by Aistear, the Professional Pedagogy Project (PPP) provided an in-depth focus on the areas of Early Childhood Play and Curriculum, Planning and Reflective Practice, Assessment for Learning and Transitions. This tailored programme not only incorporated training, but supported the transference of theory to practice through onsite mentoring and peer knowledge themed cluster sessions. The aim was to scaffold and strengthen pedagogical practice, to enable educators to take ownership of that change and to use self and team reflection to map progress.
