Who we are
We are The Foundation Stage Forum Ltd, a company registered in England with company number 05757213 and a registered address of WaterCourt, 65 High Street, Lewes, England, BN7 1XG, UK.
Who you are and your CPD course access
You are anyone who is interested in the continuing professional development courses we provide here. They have been designed for both experienced educators and individuals new to the teaching profession.
You can access the courses as a ‘guest’ or, if you are a ‘full staff member’ or a ‘manager’ registered with an email address on an active Tapestry account, you can create a user account on this CPD site linked to your Tapestry account.
If you cannot log in to Tapestry as a ‘full staff member’ or a ‘manager’ you will have to access this CPD site as a ‘guest’.
If you do log in with your Tapestry details, the user profile created will be tied to your Tapestry account and so will only be accessible as long as your Tapestry account is.
If you do not want a user profile linked to your Tapestry login then please make sure to only access this CPD site as a ‘guest’.
‘Guests’ will be able to view the content of our ‘free to access’ courses but will not be able to participate in some of the interactive elements or the forum areas. Their progress through the courses will not be remembered and they will not receive a certificate at the end of the course.
