Free e-learning resource – Preterm Birth Information for Education Professionals

The e-learning resource was co-designed with teachers, educational psychologists, parents of children born preterm, and young adults who were born preterm themselves and comprises evidence-based information about what preterm birth is, how it may affect children’s development and learning, and what can be done to support them in the classroom.


The e-learning resource can be accessed for free using this weblink:


An accompanying podcast about the e-learning resource and about the educational needs of preterm born children more generally has also been released by the TES. This can be accessed here:
