This course gives you the chance to progress your professional pathway in the early years sector. You'll develop the essential skills and attributes that employers in the sector value while gaining experience in an academic background.
We combine academic rigour with fun, creative ways to encourage the 0-8s to take part in learning. You’ll examine perspectives on early childhood education and care from many different viewpoints from across the world. And analyse alternative learning environments.
Build practical skills while you train, carrying out part of your learning in your own workplace. You could access our simulated early years learning environment. And study for an accredited Forest School certification. This gives you a valuable extra qualification and prepares you to work outside with children, taking into account a range of extra needs.
You’ll have the opportunity to achieve Graduate Practitioner Status1 to boost your career development. And graduate ready for initial teacher training programmes and postgraduate-level study.
