Course summary

This course is designed for those who are interested in a broad theoretical and practical understanding of childhood. The degree focuses on the steps children and young people take on their learning and developmental journey, and teaches you how to support them along the way. You’ll study the theory of educational policy and practice, alongside an understanding of the holistic world of the child and what childhood as a specific phase of life means. **Why this course at Marjon?** • Experiment with different styles of working with children in a variety of formal and informal settings. Understand the broad theories and policies behind childhood and cognitive development education. Give yourself a solid academic grounding for your future career whilst exploring your strengths and interests. • A variety of placements give you the experience and confidence needed to apply for postgraduate training. • At no stage will you be assessed in practice, giving you total freedom to explore your vocation. **What might I become?** Many students go on to early years or primary teaching, through a postgraduate qualification such as a postgraduate diploma in Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT), School Direct or PGCE. Other opportunities include community education, integrated services, children’s workforce professionals, care services and social work. Students who find later childhood and informal education interesting can choose to undertake a postgraduate qualification in Youth and Community work.**Find out more at Open Day**Open Day is your opportunity to find out more about studying Childhood Practice at Marjon.
