Capita’s National Transforming Early Years Services in Scotland Conference, taking place in Edinburgh on the 20th February 2013, is timed to follow the launch of the Early Years Collaborative; a multi-agency, local, quality improvement programme being delivered on a national scale from January 2013. Attend to hear about this programme and how the Early Years Taskforce aims to transform early years provision byadopting evidence-based approaches to planning and delivering services, working in partnership and targeting resources.

You will hear from the Scottish Government about the progression of the Children and Young People Bill and detail on the legislative proposals, which include updating children's rightsextending the funded annual provision of early learning and childcare and re-aligning the focus of the care system to incorporate long-term needs.

Leading practitioners from a range of early years settings will provide best practice guidance on key challenges, including:

• Embedding new legislative proposals expected in the Children and Young People Billand approaches towards Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC)
• Applying preventative spending strategies to support children
• Multi-agency approaches to embedding co-ordinated family support
• Utilising the Early Years Change Fund to develop community based strategies across all sectors to support those in need

Attend to learn how to improve outcomes for children and their families by focusing your early years services on preventative spending, early intervention and integrated care.
