Course summary

A degree from our Early Childhood Studies programme is ideal if you want to gain a graduate-level qualification that will enable you to work with children aged from birth to 8 years old. You'll have a holistic approach to understanding early childhood, relating appropriate educational theory to practice. You'll look critically at the role of play, considering differing curriculum models and examining the impact of early childhood researchers and theorists on current government perspectives and practices. This degree will prepare you for many types of employment and is supported by employers within the industry.  Graduates from our Early Childhood Studies degree have progressed into primary Teacher Training, early years teaching, social work, further education, charity work and management.  You'll gain placement opportunities across the birth to 8 years old age range and you'll establish lifelong networks that you can use throughout your career. In addition to our ‘core’ Early Childhood Studies degree, we offer two pathways. Choose the award that includes Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) and upon graduation, you will be a teacher who is qualified to work with children from birth to 5.  Alternatively, the award that includes a pathway in Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) provides a more detailed focus into that area. You’ll be taught by sector professionals with direct experience of children in a variety of education and early year’s settings. Specialist guest speakers will discuss different roles in employment. To enhance your understanding of contemporary issues, there will also be opportunities to attend research conferences and seminars that are supported by education and early year’s speakers. The programme is supported by employers within the industry. You’ll gain placement opportunities across the 0-8 age range –something that will enable you to establish lifelong networks. Your placements will provide real world experience so you can make informed decisions about your career direction.
