Course summary

This course is designed for those who are interested in establishing, or developing a career working with younger children and developing skills and knowledge of early childhood. Upon successful completion of assessed placements, you will gain certification of Graduate Practitioner Competencies at Level 6, as supported by the Early Childhood Studies Degree Network and recognised by the Department for Education’s Career Progression for the Early Years Workforce. This will qualify you to work as an Early Years Educator. It also provides a clear pathway to postgraduate study and Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). Additional opportunities available following completion of this degree include progression to further study and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Social Work or Youth Work. You’ll understand the steps children take on their learning and developmental journey, and learn how to support them along the way. Studies focus on specific elements such as how children develop language and an introduction to psychology, as well as a broader understanding of educational policy and practice theory. You’ll take part in work-based learning with placement opportunities, during which you’ll be encouraged to be critically reflective of your own work, as well as observing the practice of other professionals.
