CACHE Centre celebrates 5th anniversary
In March 2013, Early Years Educational Services (EYES), who are based in Dubai, held a celebratory event to mark their 5th anniversary. They hosted a 2 day Early Years Conference which was the first of its kind in the UAE. Sarah Rogers, Director of EYES, said:
"We were pleased to welcome CACHE representatives to support this event, with Vicky Cortvriend delivering two speeches for us on the importance of a qualified workforce; this continues the tradition of the ongoing support we receive from CACHE. From the variety and quality of resources, to the support from the Information Centre, to the friendly approach and advice from our CACHE centre advisor and training providers, we have been happy with the support we have received. Tutors from EYES visit the UK and take part in CACHE training days, where we enjoy meeting colleagues from other CACHE Centres and networking to learn and share best practice."

The students that join EYES come from many backgrounds with many cultures and languages represented; EYES operates comprehensive equality and inclusive policies to meet their diverse needs and support the successful completion of their studies.
