Course summary

The programme is designed for adults with no or few qualifications who want to become involved in a career in childhood practice or early years. Work in early years is changing in Scotland and there are good career opportunities in a rewarding and key job area for the development of the future life chances of children and families. The programme is specifically developed for those who wish to progress to HNC and make a difference.

This programme provides the opportunity for progression to an HNC Childhood Practice course. The HNC provides good career opportunities and if you wish you can progress to degree study. (The HNC Childhood Practice is the first year of the BA Childhood Studies/BA Childhood Practice degree at UWS and other universities with an articulation agreement in place).

The course is challenging and considerable study will be required out with college time.
You must be able to cope with the demands placed on you for study and work placement as you are developing a career path where others are reliant on you to be there for them.

The programme includes work placement in an early learning and childcare setting and a variety of both practical and theoretical study.
