Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Early Childhood Studies with Early Years Practitioner Status (EYPS) offers a holistic approach to understanding children from birth to eight years. It marks the importance of early childhood as a significant period in life which is the basis for a life-long-learning, where children are viewed as capable and competent members of society.

On this course students are required to spend a minimum of 700 hours (approximately 20 weeks) on placement in early childhood settings and are required to display competency in National Occupational Standards to meet Social Care Wales standards. Placements are full-time and set out in blocks of between five and ten weeks. Graduates will qualify with the Early Years Practitioner Status qualification.

You will learn how to support children and recognise them as being at the centre of families, communities and the wider socio-economic world.

ECS currently has an increasingly significant high profile internationally at government level and within international organisations, where children’s rights, health, well-being and social problems have attracted much attention due to recent global movements and the refugee crisis.
